5.0 out of 5 stars Lucian Freud, 5 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lucian Freud (Hardcover)
This substantial volume covers most of Freud's working life apart from the last few years. Although fairly expensive, the book is well produced with quality photos of the paintings and as always you get what you pay for. Freud could certainly paint well which is more than can be said for some so called contemporary artists, the equivalent of the alternative comedian! It's a shame that many of Freud's models look strangely sad, compounded by his use of a slightly washed out colour palette giving a rather cool effect. If you enjoyed the recent Freud exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London which was a great success, then this book is essential.
