Hardback.  First edition.  Signed by William Feaver to title page.  All Constable’s work is erotic in the true sense’ says Lucian Freud in a conversation with William Feaver about what Constable’s work means to him. This conversation took place while Freud was selecting work for the Constable exhibition shown at the Grand Palais, Paris, from October 2002-January 2003. Due to the huge success of the exhibition, the catalogue (in which Freud’s conversation was published in French only) sold out during the run of the exhibition, and is now no onger in print. This conversation has never before been published in English, and the British Council is now making it available in its entirity, in English, in a beautifully designed hard-back book. Sixty-one full-colour illustrations of work by Constable and Freud accompany the conversation. Lucian Freud has made a new etching ‘Elm Tree after Constable’ specially for this book, which is featured in detail on the cover, and in full inside the book.  Condition: Near fine.
