See into the mind of one of the 20th century’s greatest portrait painters, as the Royal Academy of Arts brings Lucian Freud’s self-portraits together for the first time.
Examine how Freud’s artistic style and personal appearance evolves through time with 50 paintings, prints and drawings. The Berlin-born artist’s work developed over seven decades, from linear depictions of his younger self, to fuller, more characterful representations in latter years.
See his first self-portrait, Man with a Feather, from 1943, compare the techniques with one of his late paintings, Self-portrait, Reflection, from 2002, and study 1993 work Painter Working, Reflection, which shows the artist naked except for a pair of boots.
