Tate's British Artist Series books are affordable and accessible introductions by leading authorities to some of the greatest figures in British art.
Lucian Freud (1922 – 2011) was one of the most influential artists of his generation. Once hailed as the ‘greatest living realist painter’, Freud’s commitment to realism, and particularly to the human figure, was often controversial. Always creating debate, Freud consistently addressed questions of human existence and perception, testing, through a sustained practice of looking, the possibility of knowing and recording human individuality. In this brand new survey of the artist’s life and work, Virginia Button introduces readers to one of the twentieth century’s most important and best-loved artists.
Virginia Button is a writer and curator. Director of The Falmouth School of Art, Falmouth University, she is an expert in twentieth century art and the author of The Turner Prize.
