Lucian Freud

Lucian Freud Lucian Michael Freud, OM, CH (/ˈluː.si.ən ˈfrɔɪd/; 8 December 1922 -- 20 July 2011)[1] was a German-born British painter. Known chiefly for his thickly impastoed portrait and figure paintings, he was widely considered the pre-eminent British artist of his time.[2] His works are noted for their psychological penetration, and for their often discomforting examination of the relationship between artist and model.[3]
