Product description


The exhibition and catalog help remind us of a more vibrant, dramatizing artist than the Freud we have been familiar with in the past few decadeds. Not that his art became, over the years, radically diferent. On some level, the English painter's work remained remarkably consistent all the way through.--Sanford Schwartz "The New York Review of Books "

A specific sub-section of Freud's oeuvre, competently displayed here.
The book itself is very well put together and the text is opportune.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simplicity Made Grand 10 May 2012
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Lucian Freud considered himself a brilliant draughtsman in both drawing and etching. Most of his major paintings have elements of preparatory drawings that enhance the appreciation of the final works. Dating back to the 1940s and spanning the artist's career, Lucian Freud: Drawings brings together more than 100 works, several of which have never been shown in public before. Writer/Curator William Feaver worked closely with the artist on this exhibition in the five years preceding his death in July 2011.

The more than 100 works range from the intimate, including portraits of his mother and father, his children and close friends - among them the painter Francis Bacon - to landscapes and studies of animals. Etchings, watercolors, gouaches and works rendered in chalk, charcoal, pastel, conté, and pen and ink, are to be interspersed with oil paintings, constantly interrelating.

According to Feaver, "From childhood there were drawings of goblins and fairies, tables piled high and the pear tree outside the Freuds' holiday home on the Baltic island of Hiddensee. Later came fantastical jeux d'espirit, sharp images of friends patient enough to sit for him, etchings and drawings demonstrating his love of Ingres." This is a collection of Freud's talent that exceeds expectations. There is more to be learned form studying these drawings than in attending an entire course of drawing in art school! Grady Harp, May 12
