17th September 2020 - 3rd January 2021

This is the first exhibition in the Foundation’s programme to be comprised entirely of new work created in response to the Palace’s history as an English country estate and as the home to successive generations of the Spencer-Churchill family and their collection of paintings, tapestries and decorative arts.

Rendered in her emotive, frenetic brushstrokes, Brown’s new series visually references masterpieces by Sir Joshua Reynolds and Sir Anthony Van Dyck on view at the Palace, as well as family heraldry, armorial banners and the martial scenes of the Blenheim Tapestries that line the State Rooms.
