A lightly worked and atmospheric variation on a mythological theme, its foreground figures merge with fluidity between human and hybrid forms. The watercolour captures subtle gesture, providing an alternative to her large paintings which employ heavier blends of paint and layered impasto. Cecily Brown's represented by leading international galleries and considered amongst the most talented of contemporary painters. Auction estimate (US$40,000-60,000).
