Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Lucian Freud was een van de grootste realistische schilders ter wereld. Dit nieuwe, gezaghebbende overzicht van Freuds portretten en modelschilderijen verkent zijn werk gedurende zeven decennia, van de vroege jaren 1940 tot zijn dood in 2011. De mooiste portretten uit openbare en particuliere collecties van over de hele wereld komen samen in dit boek.

'Lucian Freud: Portraits' verkent de stilistische ontwikkeling en de technische virtuositeit van Freud. Een reeks van niet eerder gepubliceerde interviews uitgevoerd door Michael Auping tussen mei 2009 en januari 2011 onthullen de gedachten van de kunstenaar over de complexe relatie tussen kunstenaar en model, de bijzondere uitdagingen van het schilderen van naaktmodellen zelfportretten, en zijn opvattingen over andere schilders die hij bewonderde. Het boek bevat meer dan 130 schilderijen, tekeningen en etsen geselecteerd in nauwe samenwerking met de kunstenaar.

- Sarah Howgate is conservator van Hedendaagse Portraits in de National Portrait Gallery, Londen.
- Michael Auping is Chief conservator van het Museum voor Moderne Kunst in Fort Worth.
- John Richardson, een vriend van Lucian Freud en auteur van een 'A Life of Picasso' --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I visited the Lucian Freud exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London, last year. This book accompanied the exhibition. At the time of my visit I did not buy the book, but on reflection decided that this was a poor decision. The book has given me a good background to the artist, and an understanding of Freud's particular approach to portraiture and his painting style. It is a valued addition to my collection of books on artists and their work.

For the price paid, the book represents good value for money, given the content and the pleasure it will continue to give.

I am very fond of the work of Lucian Freud's,and I have two excellent books about mainly his work.
One is the above and the other is 'Lucian Freud'by William Feaver.They both contain very many
colour pictures of his work.The Feaver one has a lot more pictures ,but both are fantastic
and offer a very informative account of his oeuvre.

I ordered two books for my husband (who is a working Artist). He was absolutely delighted with both books. This one gave some background about the Artist, Lucian Freud, and many coloured plates of his work. It was excellent value for the money. Thank you.

This catalogue from the Freud exhibition at the Portrait Gallery/National Gallery (2012) does full justice to both a remarkable exhibition and to the artist himself.
