Delia Brown

by Hunter Drohojowska-Philp

The Los Angeles artist Delia Brown’s compelling new cycle of narrative paintings, titled “Felicity and Caprice,” conflates the allegorical manner of Jean Honore Fragonard with the saucy storytelling of Jacqueline Susann. Actually, the tale told by Brown’s series of some two dozen 8 x 12 in. oil-on-board works is derived from Claude Chabrol’s 1968 film Les Biches, whose title is typically translated as The Does but might be more freely rendered as The Bad Girls.
