It gives a fantastic insight into this artist world and working practice and will help you brush up your knowledge before the exhibition.
The painting ‘Man with a Blue Scarf’ is even included among the exhibits.
Lucian Freud, Man with a Blue Scarf, oil on canvas, Private Collection
Rather spookily this was the book that I was reading when I read in the paper that Lucian Freud had passed away.
P.S. If you want a ticket for the Lucian Freud exhibition I would get in there quickly on http://www.npg.org.uk/freudsite/ as they are selling like hotcakes!
