Historical Baggage: Glenn Brown and His Sources
LONDON  •  British Museum  •  15 May - 22 July 2018
 
Historical Baggage features graphic works by Glenn Brown alongside the sources that inspired them. Brown’s early series of layered portraits based on prints by Rembrandt and Lucian Freud are contrasted with his recent series Half-Life (2016), in a fresh engagement with Rembrandt’s graphic oeuvre. The centerpiece, a major new drawing generously donated by the artist, is shown alongside the Rembrandt print to which it responds. The display illustrates Brown’s stylistic development, moving from appropriating found lines to transforming them as the basis of his unique visual language.
