    Oh this was wonderful You see, after reading the book about Schiele I was quite nervous my grandmother gave me the Volkskrant set with 20 books about Modern Masters for my graduation, but the first one I read was rather awkwardly written and boring But this was a perfect introduction to Lucian Freud, I think for example no sidetracking, with explanations, engagingly written Why yes Reinhard Steiner, I m looking at you I didn t know anything about Freud going into the book and I wasn t Oh this was wonderful You see, after reading the book about Schiele I was quite nervous my grandmother gave me the Volkskrant set with 20 books about Modern Masters for my graduation, but the first one I read was rather awkwardly written and boring But this was a perfect introduction to Lucian Freud, I think for example no sidetracking, with explanations, engagingly written Why yes Reinhard Steiner, I m looking at you I didn t know anything about Freud going into the book and I wasn t particulary drawn to the art on the cover, but during the reading I grow really fond of Freud although I still don t like the cover painting I admire his honesty and evenhis visions on art He seems very pure and I do wish now so to see some paintings in real life

    This is a good quality inexpensive little art book written by a very good arts writer The reproductions are pretty good and clear The paper quality is excellent and page layouts are pleasing This is a good introduction to the work and life of one of the twentieth century s greatest painters The book is also nice to have for portrait artists already familiar with Freud s work and life, just for to marvel at his colour palette, paint handling, and confident drawing with his brush.

  6. Diogo says:

    The book itself is a gorgeous thing to hold The paper slides smoothly through your fingers with the pleasant scent of quality prints The choice between the paintings and the narrative is good It is not a very elaborate book, but a sorts of a gentle hike through the painting of Freud The rating is of 3.5 in 5, rounded up to 4 in 5.

    Amazing, disturbing, fleshy, luminous, brutally honest, occasionally cruel, and human, all too human This book makes a very convincing argument that Lucian Freud 1922 2011 deserves to be remembered as one of the very greatest portrait painters full stop.

  8. Paul says:

    A good introduction to Freud with some great paintings presented, if you want to get deeper into the man behind the paintings I would probably go elsewhere otherwise this is a great starting point.

    8 December 1922 20 July 2011The last of the Great Painters is gone

    Good Taschen monograph on the aptly dubbed Ingres of existentialism.
