About the Cecily Brown Art Exhibition at Blenheim Palace
Made up entirely of new works inspired by the Palace’s collection, the Blenheim Art Foundation will unveil a major solo exhibition by acclaimed British Artist Cecily Brown.
This will be the first exhibition in the Foundation’s programme to be comprised entirely of new work created in response to the Palace’s history as an English country estate and as the home to successive generations of the Spencer-Churchill family and their collection of paintings, tapestries and decorative arts.
Rendered in her emotive, frenetic brushstrokes, Brown’s new series will visually reference masterpieces by Sir Joshua Reynolds and Sir Anthony Van Dyck on view at the Palace, as well as family heraldry, armorial banners and the martial scenes of the Blenheim Tapestries that line the State Rooms.
