Very nice perfect quality full page pictures.

Every great artist deserves a great biographer: Bacon had David Sylvester, Giocometti had Sylvester AND James Lord, and Lucien Freud has Robert Hughes.

I recommend this to anyone who is interested in painting portraits of people.

Format: Paperback
Every great artist deserves a great biographer: Bacon had David Sylvester, Giocometti had Sylvester AND James Lord, and Lucien Freud has Robert Hughes. Hughes' generous text is richly detailed and captures the mood of Freud's heavily impastoed works with turns of phrase that become as important as the art. To see the change in Freud's technique and approach to the figure from his early works to his current larger than life theatrical style is jolting. Always commited to portraiture his paintings have grown from the tightly surfaced, tiny but well known head of his friend Francis Bacon, to his current full figures as viewed from bizarre vantage. His brush technique has become more coarse and in doing so he is creating figures that, while monumental, feel as thogh they pulsate on the canvas. Freud is one of the important painters of our time and this book justifies that position on every level. A scholarly - yet pulsatile - study of a modern genius.

Freud's work primarily through photographs of his paintings. However, the text is weak on chronology, development and current status of his painting technique. ...A good intro for the person who is not familiar with his work.

36 of 46 people found the following review helpful By Paul J. Williams on February 22, 2000
Format: Paperback
Any book containing the work of Lucian Freud, I feel, writes itself. Not as an insult to the author, but as a testiment to the painter himself.
The full page color photos do justice to this great man, as well as a book can.
The author does an acceptional job of sumarizing and analyzing the painter's Life and work.

The book is well worth having. There are a lot of pictures of the paintings completed by this artist, and they show good detail of the brush strokes and colours used. The writer explains well what the artist is about.

Format: Paperback
Excellent photos of a Collection of L. Freud paintings. I recommend this to anyone who is interested in painting portraits of people. Freud paints what he sees, showing the beauty and the beast in all his subjects. A very important artist.
