Recommended Read

If you are planning a visit to the unmissable Lucian Freud exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery then I thoroughly recommend Martin Gayford’s ‘Man with a Blue Scarf: On Sitting for a Portrait by Lucian Freud’.

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 as they are selling like hotcakes!
