Lucian Freud Dies at 88 (1922-2011)

Lucian Freud in 1947 (aged 25)

'Girl with Kitten' by Lucian Freud 1947

Today's The Independent newspaper article &
an article from The Telegraph



Quite odd in a way, as over the past couple of weeks I've been reading the book 'The Rare & the Beautiful:The Garman Sisters' and Freud is mentioned in the book due to his marriage/affairs with two of the sisters. I wondered whether he was still alive when I was reading about him and he would have been, but just by a few days. Odd isn't it?

P.S. I think the woman in the picture is Lorna Garman, who was his muse and was reputed to have been one of the great loves in his life.

Oh, I never knew that...I did wonder who the model was! Thank you for sharing... We've missed youy lately, you've been a bit quiet!
I'm back now!

Oh and by the way thanks for the heads up about the 'Home of Metal' exhibition. I went last weekend and it was brilliant. The first exhibition I've been to where they've played loud heavy metal.
