Lucian Freud (1922 – 2011) was one of the most influential artists of his generation. Hailed as the ‘greatest living realist painter’, Freud’s commitment to realism, and particularly to the human figure, was often controversial. Always creating debate, Freud consistently addressed questions of human existence and perception, testing, through a sustained practice of looking, the possibility of knowing and recording human individuality.

In this brand new survey of the artist’s life and work, Virginia Button introduces us to one of the twentieth century’s most important artists.
