Lucian Freud portraits by Sarah Howgate( Book )

11 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Portraits were central to the work of Lucian Freud (1922-2011). Working only from life, the artists claimed, "I could never put anything into a picture that wasn't actually there in front of me." This major retrospective catalogue surveys Freud's portraits across the seven decades of his career. Featuring the finest portraits from public and private collections around the world, the book explores the stylistic development and remarkable technical virtuosity of an artist regarded as one of the most innovative figurative painters the medium has known. Freud's chosen subjects were often his intimates--family members, friends, and artistic colleagues such as Frank Auerbach, Francis Bacon, Leigh Bowery, and David Hockney. Freud was a private man who rarely gave interviews, and his thoughts on the complex relationship between artist and sitter and the challenges of painting nudes and self-portraits are published here for the first time, documented in a series of interviews with Michael Auping, conducted between May 2009 and January 2011. An illustrated chronology of the artist's life provides fascinating insights into Freud's background as a grandson of Sigmund Freud, and his unorthodox artistic education
Lucian Freud : the painter's etchings by Starr Figura( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the foremost artists working today, Lucian Freud had redefined portraiture and the nude through his frank scrutiny of the human form. Although he is best known as a painter, etching is integral to Freud's practice. This volume accompanies a major Museum of Modern Art exhibition presenting the full scope of Freud's etchings, along with a critical selection of related paintings and drawings. Organized by Starr Figura, Lucian Freud: The Painter's Etchings includes seventy etchings - from the artist's rare early experiments of the 1940s to the increasingly complex compositions he has created since rediscovering the medium in the early 1980s - juxtaposed with some twenty-two paintings and seven drawings. Figura's essay in this catalogue examines the dramatic dialogue among mediums in Freud's practice, and explores the crucial cross-pollinating relationship between his etchings and his works on canvas. Pared down to essentials of line, often depicting figures cropped or isolated against empty backgrounds, Freud's prints achieve a startling degree of psychological tension and formal abstraction. Etching is here revealed as a medium uniquely suited to Freud's distinct artistic goals."--Jacket
Degas and the nude by George T. M Shackelford( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Degas and the Nude" is the first book in a generation to explore the artist's treatment of the nude from his early years in the 1850s and 1860s, through his triumphs in the 1880s and 1890s, all the way to his last decades when the theme dominated his artistic production in all media. With essays by leading American and French critics, it provides a new interpretation of Degas' evolving conception of the nude, situating it in the subject's broader context among his peers in nineteenth-century France. It explores how Degas exploited all of the body's expressive possibilities, how his vision of the nude informed his notion of modernity, and how he abandoned the classical or historical form in favor of a figure seen in her own time and setting--whether engaged in overtly carnal acts or just stepping out of an ordinary bath.--

Lucian Freud by Lucian Freud( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in German and English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die von dieser Publikation begleitete Ausstellung in Wien ist in den Monaten vor seinem Tod im Juli 2011 in enger Zusammenarbeit mit dem Künstler konzipiert worden und somit die letzte, die Lucian Freud zu Lebzeiten selbst zusammengestellt hat. Werke aus seiner gesamten, siebzig Jahre währenden Schaffensperiode werden gezeigt, und erstmals sind jene Bilder hier vereint, die er selbst für seine wichtigsten Arbeiten hielt. Unter ihnen befinden sich einige seiner berühmtesten Gemälde: Selbstporträts, Bildnisse von Freuds Familienmitgliedern oder anderen Künstlern wie Francis Bacon, aber auch Landschaften und Stillleben. Zugleich erkennt man Freuds großes Interesse an den Werken der Alten Meister und der altägyptischen Kunst. Eine Hommage an einen großen Künstler - von ihm selbst als kostbares Vermächtnis autorisiert

Lucian Freud, 1996-2005 by Lucian Freud( Book )

21 editions published in 2005 in 5 languages and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Well into his ninth decade, the painter Lucian Freud (grandson of Sigmund) not only shows no signs of slowing down, he hasn't even adopted a signature "late style." Although most of the paintings and drawings in this marvelous collection are characteristically concerned with the human body, the painter's dogs are frequently (and vividly) present; there are a number of landscapes (including an evocative Constable tribute); and his portraits include a number that are focused very tightly on the face. These portraits?very small scale, and with an exaggeration of detail that miraculously avoids caricature?culminate in Freud's controversial portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. A charming photograph records her sitting for the painting?the artist looks away from his tiny canvas while the monarch regards him with a look of wry amusement. The final portrait captures not only the queen's regal hauteur but also the defiance of a tough old granny whose life has been far from easy. This broad sympathy for the ways in which experience marks our faces and bodies has deepened in Freud?if he is "mellowing" at all it is toward an interest in character as strong as his interest in the flesh that contains it. The reproductions are of unusually high quality?Freud's highly worked and pebbled surfaces seem to stand out from the page

Lucian Freud : a closer look : works from the UBS art collection by Lucian Freud( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue focuses on the artist's graphic production from the period after 1982 with works from the UBS Art Collection. Freud's (1922--2011) portraits—often of the same subjects he painted-manage to encompass his own psyche, the models' responses and our own reactions. "My work," he said, "is purely autobiographical. It is about myself and my surroundings." In an etching, the subject is scored into a metal plate covered with a wax mixture, which, after immersion in an acid bath, exposes the scorings, which are left as black lines in the finished print. Readers get even closer access to this involved and nontraditional printmaking process, as the volume is supplemented with ten stages of a print from a private collection in England

9 editions published in 2006 in English and German and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Freud at Work is a rare glimpse into the life of one of the most celebrated - and most private - artists working today. Though in his eighties, this great figurative artist continues to paint with undiminished energy and discipline." "In 120 revealing black-and-white and color photographs taken in Lucian Freud's London studio, and in a fascinating in-depth interview, we come to understand the stages of the artist's work and the intensity of his interaction with his subjects - whether fellow artist David Hockney, the queen of England, or performance artist Leigh Bowery, among others." "Two photographers have been recording Freud at work over the past twenty years. The artist, uncharacteristically, allowed Bruce Bernard, the acclaimed picture editor, to photograph him in the studio, especially during the years he was working with Bowery as his model. Following Bernard's death in 2000, David Dawson, the painter's assistant, began photographing the daily life of the studio, showing us the progress of Freud's paintings, his models - some naked, some famous - and the painter himself caught in moments of intense concentration." "Though Freud has always been reluctant to give interviews, talk about the painters he admires, or discuss how he works, his conversation here with the Australian writer Sebastian Smee is frank and revealing." "Unlike any other book we have seen about Freud - comparable to David Douglas Duncan's books of photographs of Picasso - this important document invites us for the first time into the secret domain of the artist." --Book Jacket
