Considered one of the foremost painters of her generation, Brown is best known for her large-scale, vivid, gestural paintings which toy between abstraction and figuration in turn. For this exhibition, Brown has developed a significant new body of work responding to Blenheim Palace’s history as an English country estate and as the home to successive generations of the Spencer-Churchill family and their world-renowned permanent collection of paintings, tapestries and decorative arts.

Providing charged re-interpretations of pastoral imagery, hunting scenes and bucolic Victorian fairy painting, Brown – who has been based in the US for the last 25 years – offers an international perspective on her British heritage, critically and sensually exploring the nostalgic fantasies of the British stately home in the popular imagination. Brown’s works evoke a dream-like vision of the past, reflecting on the Palace’s artworks as symbols of power and influence, their images and narratives still informing perceptions of Britain today.
