Lucian had such a talent for capturing quiet emotion and really gorgeous flesh. Here are some of my favorite Freud paintings:
|Large Interier W. 11, 1981-1983|
"The painter makes real to others his innermost feelings about what he cares for. A secret becomes known to everyone who views the picture through the intensity with which it is felt."
|Hotel Bedroom, 1954|
|Ib and her Husband, 1992|
"The aura given out by a person or object is as much a part of them as their flesh. The effect that they make in space is as bound up with them as might be their colour or smell ... Therefore the painter must be as concerned with the air surrounding his subject as with the subject itself. It is through observation and perception of atmosphere that he can register the feeling that he wishes his painting to give out."Lucian Freud
|Girl with White Dog, 1952|
|Girl with a Kitten, 1947|
|Self Portrait, 1985|
Rest in Peace, Lucian...Thank you so much for the inspiration.
