Lucian Freud Portraits
Available in Stock
Portraits were central to the work of Lucian Freud (1922–2011), and he described his approach to his sitters as ‘trying to relay something of who they are as a physical and emotional presence. I want the paint to work as flesh does’. In 2012, a major retrospective exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery surveyed Freud’s portraits, from 1941 to 2011. This catalogue presents reproductions of the 130 works exhibited, accompanied by essays, an interview with the artist and an illustrated chronology.
