Lucian Freud 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 consistantly addressed questions of human existence and perception, testing, through a sustained practice of looking, the possibility of knowning and recording human individuality. In this new survey of the artist’s life and work, Virginia Button introduces us to one of the 20th century’s most important artists.
