Glenn Brown – Unknown Pleasure

October 10th, 2017 2:00 PMtoOctober 23rd, 2017 2:00 PM

In the wake of the success of the John Currin exhibition, the Stefano Bardini Museum will now be hosting the works of Glenn Brown till 23 October.

The Bardini Museum houses several medieval and renaissance statuary masterpieces, including Charity by Tino da Camaino, and the Madonna of the Cordai by Donatello, as well as paintings of extraordinary quality such as the monumental Crucifix by Bernardo Daddi, St. Michael the Archangel by Pollaiolo, Atlas by Guercino and a series of drawing by Tiepolo and Piazzetta. Brown will be installing twenty or so works, including paintings on canvas, drawings and sculptures  – some of which will be on display for the very first time – generating a series of suggestive, if not unsettling, comparisons and references.  The artist reveals a profound and cultured knowledge of both formal and iconographic art.
