You always remember the first time seeing a Lucian Freud, it’s just so… shocking and it’s rare that anything has that power anymore.
So tactile, unabashed and grotesque, his portraits are as strangely beautiful as they are frightening but simply depict a realistic,unflattering, and intense glimpse at the human form.
Grandson to Sigmund Freud, Lucian was considered Britain’s finest artists and he passed away this week at the age of 88.
An interesting history of his work and life can be read here.
But what do you think?
