Over 100 superb colour reproductions of Lucian Freud’s greatest paintings, including portraits, still lifes and nudes, pay tribute to one of the most original and accomplished artists of our times.

In his highly acclaimed essay for this survey of Lucian Freud’s work, Robert Hughes points out that the reality pursued in the paintings goes far beyond naturalism. It is both startling and disconcerting, producing some of the most powerful and moving visual images to have appeared in the last thirty years.

Freud has almost single-handedly redefined the figurative painting of our time. No other living painter possesses his unique ability to paint texture and thinness of skin over flesh, and his distinctive portraits have a haunting quality that makes them impossible to forget.
