Lucian Freud: A Life
David Dawson, Mark Holborn
A breathtaking visual biography of Freud, told through his own words, unpublished private photographs, and painted portraits
This unprecedented look at the private life of Lucian Freud begins with childhood snapshots and ends with rarely seen photographs made in his studio in the last weeks of his life. In between, the life of one of the most important artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries is vividly documented – through family photos, in images of the painter in his studio with some of his most celebrated sitters, and in portraits by his peers, first among them Francis Bacon.
