Christopher Le Brun holds a passionate belief in the power of figurative art and the re-exploration of narrative. This book offers the most authoritative survey of his classical muscular visual vocabulary and symbolism which has brought a unique intensity and inventiveness to contemporary painting. It also gives due recognition to his work as a printmaker and sculptor through lavish illustrations, studio photographs, excerpts from sketchbooks and facsimiles of notebooks. An illuminating dialogue with curator Bryan Robertson allows Le Brun to discuss the issues that have informed his career, while texts by Charles Saumarez Smith, Director of London''s National Portrait Gallery, and art historian Nobert Lynton set his work in context.
Trained at the Slade School of Arts, & the Chelsea School of Art in London, Le Brun went on to win a number of awards for his work. He is a trustee of the National Gallery, & in 1996, was elected a member of the Royal Academy.
