Lucien Freud Paintings


Freud, Lucian (1922-2011). This German-born British painter was a grandson of Sigmund Freud. He was one of England's pre-eminent contemporary figurative painters. Aside from showing my students one of the best painters ever, I use his work as an example of excellence in treatment of skin tones. His non-apologetic style encourages my students to stretch the boundaries of contrast, use of color, and accuracy of rendering.
