LUCIAN FREUD - MONUMENTAL

LUCIAN FREUD (1922-2011)
Catalogue accompanying exhibition on view at Acquavella Galleries, New York, from April 5 - May 24, 2019. With essays by Lucian Freud's longtime assistant David Dawson and former chief curator of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Michael Auping. Also includes an extensive chronology on the artist's life and work prepared by Olivia Patteson-Knight and Toby Treves.

The book begins with works from 1990, when Freud began painting the performance artist Leigh Bowery: these large-scale portraits of Bowery ushered in a new sense of monumentality in the artist's oeuvre. Inspired by Bowery's impressive physique, Freud began working on a larger scale, which emphasized the physical presence of his subjects. Despite their grand scale, Freud's subjects are still depicted with a sense of intimacy, penetrating honesty, and psychological depth.

The naked body is a subject that has special significance in Freud's oeuvre. Nakedness was a way for Freud to get a more truthful portrait. Freud's probing oils get fresh consideration in this monograph and Dawson provides insights and stories about Freud working on these portraits, giving an intriguing behind-the-scenes look at the life of a contemporary master of representational art.
