Editorial reviews

Increasingly seen as Britain's major living painter, Lucien Freud has always been capable of work of the greatest emotional power. Raw, startling and disconcerting, his canvases pursue a reality that goes far beyond mere naturalism, often containing elements of both risk and revelation. This brilliant essay, accompanied by reproductions of many of his most powerful images, was originally published in 1988. (Kirkus UK)
