Artist's Biography

Christopher Le Brun studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, London from 1970 to 1974 and at Chelsea School of Art, London from 1974 to 1975. From 1976 to 1983, Le Brun was a visiting lecturer at Brighton, Chelsea, Slade and Wimbledon Schools of Art.

Le Brun’s first one-man show was held in 1980 at the Nigel Greenwood Gallery, London. He was subsequently included in many of the international surveys of art of the 1980s, in Italy, France, Germany, Japan, Scandanavia and the USA. In 1984 he produced the designs for a revival of Ballet Imperial at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London, and in 1996 he received a major commission from the Jerusalem Trust for paintings for the choir of Liverpool Cathedral. He was commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery in 1999 to paint George Steiner.

From 1987 to 1988 he lived in Berlin as a guest of the Berlin Artists’ Programme of the DAAD and was Visiting Artist at the Vermont Studio School (1993) and the New York School (1995). Le Brun was a Trustee of the Tate Gallery, London from 1990 to 1995, and was appointed a Trustee of the National Gallery in 1996, the same year in which he was elected a Royal Academician. He is currently the Royal Academy’s Professor of Drawing and the Adviser to The Prince of Wales’s Drawing Studio. Le Brun lives and works in London.
