Lucian Freud

About Artist: Lucian Freud was born in 1922 and died in 2011. His portrait and figurative painting is very well known, and his main style was to produce very dramatic and psychologically penetrating work. It was not always easy to mark the barrier between the artist and the model in Lucian Freud artwork, and much of the work has been analysed on a psychological level. Freud studied at the Central School of Art in London and then attended Goldsmiths College from 1942 to 1943. He was commissioned in 1943 to illustrate a book of poems by Nicholas Moore. In 1952 Freud and Lady Caroline Blackwood eloped to Paris where they were married in 1953, and then he spent the rest of his lifetime in London. He dabbled in Expressionism and Surrealism in his early work, then settled to portrait work in the 1950s. Much of the work he produced involves nude models, mostly women. He used to take a textured brush and ensure that thick paint was used to produce his effects. He also famously painted standing up, which many critics felt affected the quality of his work in a positive way. Another trait that Freud employed was to clean his brush off after each stroke, ensuring that each stroke produced a new effect.
