THE DRAWING CENTER

Cecily Brown: Rehearsal

Text by Claire Gilman, David Salle.

For the past ten years, British painter Cecily Brown (born 1969) has been turning heads with her voluptuous, quasi-abstract canvases. All the while, she has been making drawings, study upon study of motifs taken from a wide range of sources, including drawings by the 18th-century master William Hogarth, pages of animals from 19th-century encyclopedias and the cover of Jimi Hendrix’s 1968 album Electric Ladyland.
Cecily Brown: Rehearsal is the first book devoted to the artist’s drawings. The volume features approximately 75 drawings, many of which are being published for the first time. Arranged thematically, the book leads readers through Brown’s repeated motifs.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Artforum

David Rimanelli

Affording viewers a unique opportunity to consider Brown's work as a whole, demonstrating that her draftsmanship is nothing if not painterly.

The New Yorker

Peter Schjeldahl

...might be the season’s sexiest show…’Rehearsal’ evokes the preparation of performers: repetition builds the muscle memory crucial to the appearance of effortless motion, a quality of Brown’s work.

Town & Country

Rachel Corbett

A glimpse into the imagery that has inspired Brown for the past two decades...crowds of bodies, twisted and tangled like roots, in her signature gestural style.
