Brigid Marlin


Brigid Marlin

Brigid Marlin (born January 16, 1936) is a fantasy and portrait artist living in England. She paints in the Mische Technique, a medieval method revived by Austrian artist Ernst Fuchs, with whom she studied in Vienna.

Her fantasy work can be classified as Fantastic Realism, i.e. using figurative elements to represent visionary and psychic subjects, often with scriptural themes.

She has painted portraits, inter alia, of the Dalai Lama, J G Ballard and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. Her portrait of J G Ballard hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in London.

She founded the Inscape group in 1961, which later became the Society for Art of Imagination.
