Glenn Brown

Artist

Glenn Brown is a British artist. He is known for making paintings and drawings that appropriate and transform art-historical images. Departing from a canon that stretches from Diego Velázquez to Jean-Honoré Fragonard to Frank Auerbach, Brown’s works stage uncanny metamorphoses in which historical apparitions merge into dystopic futuristic visions. His current exhibition at Museo Stefano Bardini, Florence, (which runs until 26 October) presents new and recent work within the museum’s collection of medieval and renaissance art and artefacts.

Brown's work has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions including Fondation Vincent Van Gogh Arles (2016); Des Moines Art Center and Contemporary Art Center, Cincinnati (2016) and Rembrandt House, Amsterdam (2017). In early 2018 he will have a solo show at Gagosian Gallery, London. He is represented by Gagosian Gallery in New York and London, and Galerie Max Hetzler in Berlin and Paris.
