An Artist’s Life

with one comment

Charlie Rose’s November 24th program featured a discussion about THE ART OF LUCIAN FREUD which was insightful for me. I’ve always appreciated his work, and once traveled to London to see a retrospective at the Tate.

Standing in front of his work all the background stories, who his grandfather was, his friendship with Bacon and other non important stuff just slips away. You find yourself experiencing the intensity of a wonderful communicator. Let the paintings speak for themselves.

  1. Bob,

    I agree completely with your assertion that the history surrounding this wonderful artist simply disappears when you are faced with his work.

    Thank you for this link, I shall away and watch.

    take care,
