Lucian Freud

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Lucian Freud is a painter of german origin, born in 1922.

He is the grandson of Sigmund Freud, the famous psychnalyst.

Here are some of his paintings.

Freud’s subjects are often the people in his life; friends, family, fellow painters, lovers, children. To quote the artist: “The subject matter is autobiographical, it’s all to do with hope and memory and sensuality and involvement, really.

” I paint people,” Freud has said, “not because of what they are like, not exactly in spite of what they are like, but how they happen to be.”
