Glenn Brown / Transmutations: What’s Old is New Again

May 18, 2018 to August 19, 2018

The JSMA will exhibit eight works by Glenn Brown, selected by new and longtime masterworks collectors. Distinctive in Britain’s contemporary art market, Brown revives the art historical past through delicate acts of appropriation that build upon the legacy of Renaissance and Romantic masters. Seven of the works exemplify the paintings and drawings that comprise the majority of Brown’s oeuvre. Thanks to support from the Peterson Family Collection, a catalog accompanies the exhibition and includes an essay by Emily Shinn, a graduate student in the History of Art and Architecture.
