One of the foremost figurative artists working today, Lucian Freud has redefined portraiture and the nude through his unblinking scrutiny of the human form. Although he is best known as a painter, etching is integral to his practice. Lucian Freud: The Painters Etchings accompanies an exhibition that will present the full scope of Freuds etchings, including some 75 works, from the rare early experiments in the 1940s to the increasingly complex compositions he has created since rediscovering the medium in the early 1980s. The catalogue will also include a selection of paintings and drawings, illluminating the crucial, cross-pollinating relationship between Freuds etchings and his paintings.
