Known for her large-scale, high-key portraits of family, animals, and herself, the work of Joan Brown (American, 1938–1990) is playful and imaginative. The artist's 35-year career began with her art school days in 1950s San Francisco, and while she focused on abstraction in the late 1950s, her paintings took on a charming and fantastical figurative style later in her career. Each work tells a story about Brown’s life, including stories of being an avid swimmer who trained with International Swimming Hall of Fame coach and Olympic trainer Charlie Sava. Driven by a deep and life- long curiosity, her later works showcase an ever-expanding symbology as she pursued a more spiritual, metaphysical path.
