Lucian Freud is regarded by many as the world’s greatest living realist painter. Paintings of people are central to his work and this major exhibition will be the first to focus on his portraiture.
The exhibition will be divided into broad thematic groups which concentrate on particular periods, groups of sitters and formal considerations to demonstrate Freud’s stylistic development and technical virtuosity. Insightful paintings of the artist’s lovers, friends and family, referred to by the artist as ‘people in my life’, have been selected to demonstrate the psychological drama and unrelenting observational intensity of his work.
