Lucian Freud – British Painter

Lucian Freud

[German-born British Painter, born in 1922]


Normally I underplay facial expression when painting the figure, because I want expression to emerge through the body. I used to do only heads, but came to feel that I relied too much on the face. I want the head, as it were, to be more like another limb.

Lucian Freud, quote

    I like Lucian\’s work a lot but you know…& I feel dumb saying this because I know nothing of art, but I have a problem with his heads.
    Just when they\’re supposed to be resting on something like the pillows & the hand in the two cases above. Neither head looks realxed. The necks are too stiff & at the point of contact they seem to be hovering. It\’s disconcerting…for me at least.
    Lol…well that\’s just a thought anyway.
    you take care
