About Cecily Brown

London-born painter Cecily Brown creates vivid, atmospheric depictions of fragmented bodies, often in erotic positions, that are depicted among swells of color and gesture. Her energetic brushwork and sensual use of paint have earned her comparison to Willem de Kooning and Francis Bacon. Drawing on a wide-range of art historical references—from 17th-century French Classicism to Abstract Expressionism—Brown is credited as a central figure in the resurgence of painting at the turn of the millennium.

British, b. 1969, London, United Kingdom, based in New York, New York
