En Brunaille - Painted Drawings

5th October - 23rd December 2011 (extended to 5th February 2012)

This exhibition showed a group of painted sketches from Christ Church’s collection painted in a hue of brown tones, hence the technical term en brunaille (in brown). The works, by painters such as Anthony van Dyck and Frans Floris, can be regarded as standing between the initial sketched idea and the finished painting. They were often used to present the proposal to the client.
