Grand Master

"Reflection with Two Children" (1965)

Lucian Freud, one of the great painters of our time, died yesterday.

Lying by the Rags (1989-90)

He was 88.

Freud’s work is stunning.

"Benefits Supervisor Sleeping" (1995)

He painted the human figure like nobody else and was an artist who got better with age.

"Double Portrait" (1985-86)

"Reflection...self-portait" (1985)

Rest in Peace.

1) That's a great one. Thanks, D. Next time there is an exhibition of his work, really, check it out. It's almost dizzying. You go real close to his pictures and they look like rubbish, all browns and greys, like muck. Then start walking back and about 10 or 15 feet away and the whole think locks in and it's really magical.

His pictures are disturbing. The technique is just amazing.
