Over six decades, Lucian Freud has built up a reputation as one of the most distinctive contemporary figurative artists. Freud's startling and disconcerting portraits and nudes have a haunting quality that makes them impossible to forget. This stunning book brings together key works from Freud's entire career, including over 140 paintings, drawings, and etchings, some new, and many never before exhibited.

Lucian Freud's figurative paintings are hard to forget-his distinctive brushwork, color combinations, and unique poses create a landscape of translucent skin that is alarming in its frankness yet beautiful in its presentation. This catalog, accompanying a show that will travel through London, Barcelona, and Los Angeles, features key works from each phase of his six-decade-long career, from 1939 to the present. More than 140 full-color illustrations of paintings, drawings, and etchings accompany an essay by Feaver, as well as an extensive bibliography and chronology. A curator, writer, and critic, Feaver provides a historical backdrop and analysis that helps the reader navigate across the decades of Freud's career. This work joins other catalogs (notably Robert Hughes's Lucian Freud: Paintings and Catherine Lampert's Lucian Freud: Recent Works) in exposing the artist and the evolution of his art, but it incorporates a much greater range of the still-productive artist's life and work. The result is well written, beautifully designed, and recommended for all academic, public, and museum libraries.
