47 of 49 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 28, 2001
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.

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 Verified Purchase
This book gives a lot of background information about the painter Lucian Freud and his work. I found the book to be heavy on text but not enough photographs to do me a lot of good as an oil painter. I have several books on Freud's work, and this will add to my collection.

Iis a quality book but could have benefited from a few more full-page illustrations and more discussion of his painting technique. Overall a great reference book on Lucian Freud.
