From his earliest years as a child prodigy, Lucian Freud prided himself on his virtuoso drawing skills. The interplay in his work between paper (for both drawing and etching) and canvas was a defining feature of his creative habits throughout his career, as Freud’s foremost scholar and curator, William Feaver, establishes with this masterful overview of Freud’s drawing output. The fruit of Feaver’s privileged access to Freud’s studio, Lucian Freud Drawings includes more than 100 drawings, around half of which have never been exhibited or published, from the 1940s up to the artist’s death in July 2011. Examined here are portraits of Freud’s mother and father, his children and close friends-among them the painter Francis Bacon and artist Leigh Bowery-as well as landscapes and studies of animals. Spanning more than seven decades, this beautifully produced volume illuminates the very foundations of this master draftsman’s oeuvre.
