[EOS] LUCIAN FREUD: A SELF PORTRAIT (80 NR)
EXHIBITION ON SCREEN – Thursday, March 19 at 7 pm & Saturday, March 21 at 2 pm
For the first time in history the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, is bringing together Lucian Freud’s self-portraits.
The exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself. One of the most celebrated painters of our time, Lucian Freud is also one of very few 20th-century artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency.
For Lucian Freud the act of ’looking’ was everything. This film is very much about the self, the progress of time and one man’s intense struggle with the making of making art.
