Cecily Brown - The Five Senses (Smell, Taste, Sight, Touch, Sound) - 2023
These new etchings feature the figures of Venus and Cupid exploring sight through numerous Roman busts and paintings; hearing by playing the lyre; smell through the fragrance of lilies, roses, hollyhocks and tulips; and touch through physical contact. In the fifth etching, Venus and Cupid are replaced by a mortal seated before an abundance of food and being poured a large goblet of wine, alluding to human weakness in the face of gluttony.
