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 "

The book itself is very well put together and the text is opportune.
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!
