Lucian Freud (1922-2011) is arguably the greatest portrait painter of his era. Working in an uncompromisingly confrontational style, his portraits and nudes were rendered with a thickly laden brush. Often painting himself, as well as family and friends, his works are imbued with a distinctive psychological space. Painted under intense direct observation, usually over the course of many sittings, Freud observed of his practice: “The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes and, ironically, the more real.”

Published on the occasion of a major retrospective exhibition in Madrid, this book collects sixty works that delve into the history of Freud as a meticulous and merciless portraitist of everything that orbits his radius of intimacy: family, friends, acquaintances, plants or the view from the window of his study.
