Freud, Lucian

Signed limited edition prints, artists proofs and rare prints by Lucien Freud, from Girl with a white dog, to Benefits Supervisor Sleeping. 

Despite much of his early work being closely associated with both expressionism and surrealism, Freud is best-known for his unflinching portraits of friends and acquaintances, lovers and children, preferring to portray people he knew rather than an anonymous model. Indeed, one of Freud’s many unique traits was the desire to discuss the line between artist and sitter in his work.

His later work is synonymous with the gritty realism of the twentieth century, and he remains one of the most influential artists of his time, with one critic calling him “the world’s greatest living painter”.
