About The Work

In this ink and watercolor work by Cecily Brown, the celebrated painter references art-historical precedents while infusing them with her signature style, emphazing the sensuality of the female perspective. In this abstracted image of Strolling Actresses, actresses gather together amid swirls and sketches of rust-colored watercolors in a theatrical setting. Brown brings definition to the scene with gestural strokes of black ink, evoking Baroque tableaux by the likes of Rubens and Poussin.
