When you hate your muse…

CECILY BROWN For this as yet untitled 2015 oil-on-linen painting, the British artist, who tends to be inspired by other artworks rather than by models, borrowed from two works by the German Expressionist Max Beckmann, ‘‘Young Men by the Sea’’ and ‘‘The Argonauts,’’ featuring groups of standing men.

Your eyes flood before you go to sleep, he is the sun that dries them.
But what you don’t know is that he is the one who opens the floodgates.

But wait, you do know that, don’t you?
