With more than 480 illustrations, this is the most comprehensive publication to date on one of the greatest painters of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, Lucian Freud
Created in collaboration with the Lucian Freud Archive and David Dawson, Director of the Archive, and edited by Mark Holborn, this sumptuous, two-volume, slipcased publication celebrates Freud's work from the 1930s to his death in 2011, and includes hundreds of paintings, drawings and sketches, and etchings - even illustrated private letters. Nearly all the artworks included have been newly photographed by celebrated British photographer John Riddy.
This is both a vital contribution to art scholarship and a gorgeous addition to the bookshelves of art lovers around the world.
Artist: Lucian Freud
