Description
Mini print of Lucian Freud’s Girl with a Kitten, 1947.

The subject of this painting is Kathleen Garman, Freud’s first wife, and a frequent model for him throughout their short marriage. Although unnamed in the title, Kathleen was known by the diminutive ‘Kitty’, which gives a striking significance to the white-knuckled, choking grasp with which she holds the kitten in the portrait. Kitty’s eyes are averted, but the kitten stares out at the viewer, imbuing the painting with an unsettling poignancy.

Lucian Michael Freud (1922 – 2011) was a British painter and draftsman, and is considered one of the foremost 20th-century portraitists. Although his early work contained surrealist elements, he is best known for his figurative paintings more heavily influenced by realism and intense observation. Most of his models were friends and family members, and this relationship between artist and model, often unsettling or uncomfortable, is a central theme to his work. His reputation for demanding schedules for these models was well established, with one painting taking approximately 2,400 hours to complete and requiring the model to attend all but four evenings of that time.
