Freud Lucian


Lucian Freud (8 December 1922 - ), British painter, of Jewish origin, he was the sone of the architect Ernst Freud and the grandson of the famous Sigmund Freud.

Born in Berlin. His family left Germany for England in 1932, a little before Adolf Hitler became dictator. Lucian was a British citizen by 1939 and studied at the East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing in Dedham. Except for a year spent in Paris and Greece, he stayed for most of his life in Paddington, London, an area which inspired his the bleak urban images of his later career.

In the 40s he was interested mainly into drawing, especially portraits, then switched to painting, working for a while in a Surrealist manner. His mature style also had some Neo-Romantic elements, and he was named by critics an "Ingres of Existentialism".
