Lucian Freud - British (1922-2011)


Lucian Freud has built up a formidable reputation as one of the most powerful contemporary figurative painters of nudes, portraits and faces.

Freud is a painter who also makes etchings.  Etching has been a constant part of his artistic practice since 1982.  Freud’s etchings are often directly related to specific paintings. His prints are made not by consulting the related painting but by undertaking a separate round of sittings in the studio.  Painting and printmaking offer Freud alternative means of acquainting himself with a subject.  Freud’s subjects are often the people in his life; friends, family, fellow painters and lovers.
