Lucien Freud – The Painter’s Etchings
One of the world’s leading figurative artists of the last hundred years, Freud always regarded his etchings as parallel to his paintings. Stripping down his images to their essentials, his etchings are raw, powerful and full of emotion; just as with his paintings, Freud always worked directly from the model, with an etching plate on his easel instead of a canvas.
Coinciding with the Lucien Freud Self-Portraits exhibition at the Royal Academy which ran until the 26 January, this is an exciting chance to see a selection of Freud’s work from his later career and gain an insight into his approach to his art.
