Exhibition on Screen - Lucian Freud: A Self Portrait
A must see for anyone interested in 20th and 21st century art...
Director: David Bickerstaff Running time: 1h 30mins
Exhibition on screen offers a compelling unique opportunity to reveal the psyche and the development of one of the 20th century’s most worldly celebrated artists, Lucian Freud – the grandson of Sigmund Freud – who was a key figure in London’s post-war art scene.
For the first time in history, the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston – is bringing together Lucian Freud's self-portraits. The exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings – from his earliest portrait in 1939 to the final piece created 64 years later.
“This is a story we must never forget, we are beginning to lose the generation of people who are living witness of what happened in Europe in those terrible days, and so it’s all the more important to keep the memory alive looking into the future.” - Helen Mirren
