Lily Van der Woodsen being informed about a Brown “on the market” by her art dealer. In ep.19 season 2.

Cecily Brown (Born: 1969, London).

The artist studied in London where she received a BA in Fine Arts at Slade School of Art. Not soon after moving to the U.S, Mrs. Brown presented her works at her first solo exhibition in NY at Deitch Projects in 1997. This solo exhibition was a great success and got huge critical acclaim.

The artist also shows a great respect for art history and many of her works reveal her liking of artist such as Francisco de Goya and Willem de Kooning. Her paintings are mixed with figuration and abstraction.  She is known for giving her works titles after classic Hollywood films.

Brown is now one of the greats, and is popular among collector as for example Elton John and Michael Ovitz.  Her works have become rather expensive, but she makes nice original prints which are more “accessible”. (Below on the site).

The piece below was estimated between $600,000- $800,000 at Christies in November 2007. It was sold for $713,000.
