For the first time in history, the Royal Academy of Art in London, together with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, brings together self-portraits of Lucian Freuds.
The exhibition shows more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art has looked at himself well. Lucian Freud, one of the most famous painters of our time, is also one of the few artists of the twentieth century who has shown such cohesion.
For almost seven decades, his self-portraits provide a fascinating insight into his psyche and the development of the painter, from his first portrait painted in 1939 to the subsequent 64 years. When viewed together, their portraits are a disturbing exploration of the dynamics of aging and the process of self-representation. This intensely convincing exhibition offers a unique opportunity for DISPLAY EXHIBITIONS to reveal the life of a teacher in a single exhibition.
