LUCIAN FREUD

Lucian Michael Freud, (8 December 1922 – 20 July 2011) was a German-born British painter. Known chiefly for his thickly impastoed portrait and figure paintings, he was widely considered the pre-eminent British artist of his time. His works are noted for their psychological penetration, and for their often discomforting examination of the relationship between artist and model.
"Freud’s principal interests centred on women and dogs; he owned a number of dogs over the years including his gangly pet whippet Pluto, a particular favourite. Freud acquired Pluto in 1988, making an etching of her as a pup that same year and continuing to charter her development through his work until her demise in 2003." (Via Lucian Freud's Whippet)

Lucian Michael Freud (Berlim, 8 de dezembro de 1922 - Londres, 20 de julho de 2011) foi um pintor nascido na Alemanha e naturalizado britânico em 1939. 
"Lucian Freud praticou o que se pode descrever como humanismo incômodo. “Pinto o que vejo, não o que você quer que eu veja”, costumava dizer aos que o censuravam por um verismo que julgavam exagerado. De fato, Lucian Freud mostrava um comprometimento total com seus modelos, persistentemente buscando apreender toda sua verdade, que ele via como algo invasivo e perturbador, não tranquilizador. Essa persistência o levava a gastar 18 meses de trabalho com uma modelo, sete noites por semana, para chegar à obra final." (Por Teixeira Coelho).

  7. Sonia, Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! You may have mentioned this before, but what is your background or career? You post such interesting tidbits about artists and authors and poets, I imagine you to be a teacher. Are you a teacher? Also - just saw that "Human Clock" at the bottom - that is so cool!! I have been away from blogging for awhile, I need to get back to it. Visiting some of my favorite blogs is inspiring me :-)
