Freud, Lucian

Freud, Lucian
   b. 1922, Berlin (Germany)
   For Freud, the expression is in the body. His early work seems naïve, linear and is meticulously drawn. From the 1950s, Freud began to explore the topography of his sitters’ bodies in arresting detail; his handling became painterly, modelling the flesh with a great sense of physicality. Many of Freud’s works have the ability to both captivate and unsettle the viewer. With haunted expressions, harsh lighting, angular poses and heavy impasto, his figures are stripped of all sentiment. Viewers sense the vulnerability in Night Portrait (1977–8) and flinch at the emaciated Two Women (1992). As with Naked Man, Back View (1991–2), Freud is fascinated by bodies that exceed the boundaries.
