Christopher Le Brun (English, born 1951)
Since the early 1980s Le Brun has emerged as a leading figure in English painting. His work, which has evolved to encompass painting, sculpture and printmaking, looks back to mythological, dreamlike imagery, such as that of the nineteenth-century symbolist painters Arnold Böcklin and Gustave Moreau. Yet he also draws on Abstract Expressionism in his painterly brushwork and emphasis on the surface of the canvas. Born in Portsmouth, Le Brun studied at Slade School of Art from 1970-4 and Chelsea School of Art from 1974-5. He then went on to become a visiting lecturer at several art colleges from 1976-83. In 1996 he was elected to the Royal Academy and four years later became their first Professor of Drawing. More recently he has designed a celebratory fifty-pence coin for the Royal Mint.
