Lucian Freud

£7.99

Available in Stock

With his ‘naked portraits’ and his aim to ‘make the paint work as flesh’, Lucian Freud (1922–2011) was able to reinvent portraiture. Although often controversial, his reputation grew to the point where Freud was hailed as the ‘greatest living realist painter’. In this survey, Virginia Button considers his life and work from a more distanced perspective than the many studies written during his lifetime.
