En Brunaille - Painted Drawings

This exhibition shows 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.

Christ Church is unique among the Oxford and Cambridge colleges in possessing an important collection of Old Master paintings and drawings, housed in a purpose-built Gallery of considerable architectural interest in itself. The collection consists of some 300 paintings and almost 2000 drawings and is strongest in Italian art from the 14th to the 18th century.

The internationally renowned drawings collection in the Picture Gallery at Christ Church is regarded as one of the most important private collections of Old Master drawings in the country. These small in-house exhibitions are changed about every three months to enable the public to see a varied selection from this part of the collection.
