Glenn Brown: Come to Dust

Regular price Regular price $100

This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Glenn Brown: Come to Dust at Gagosian, Grosvenor Hill, London. It features sixty oil paintings, drawings in period frames, grisaille panel works, etchings, and sculptures that attest to the ever-intensifying dexterity with which Brown employs paint, content, and form. The works teem with contrasts and contradictions, collapsing time and allowing different, often opposing references to exist simultaneously. Sources include Rembrandt, Eugène Delacroix, Jean-Baptiste Greuze, and Raphael, as well as Abraham Bloemaert, Francesco Mancini, Gaetano Gandolfi, Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun, and Bernardo Cavallino.

The volume features a new text by novelist Hari Kunzru and a conversation between Brown and curator Xavier Bray, as well as numerous installation views that capture the dramatic transformation of the gallery space and the interaction between Brown’s recent paintings, drawings, and sculptures.
