'This comprehensive monograph is a chance to view Le Brun's entire oeuvre, with lavish colour plates that do his raw quality and emotive response to symbolism proud.' Antiques Magazine '[his] monograph shows Le Brun's massive achievement so far...his paintings, his more recent forays into sculpture...his great power as a draughtsman...what a surprising and resourceful artist [he] has become.' Modern Painters 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 legendary curator Bryan Robertson allows Le Brun to discuss the issues and passions 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.
