Art historian Catherine Lampert has been a sitter for Auerbach for 37 years. They met when she interviewed him for his exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1978. Travelling to his studio every Friday to sit for two hour sessions, Lampert has said, “he knows his sitters so well that he can tell what sort of mood they’re in, he has a very good sense of that, without inquiring in any kind of detail”. Auerbach’s drawings are intensely worked, with the charcoal marks repeatedly rubbed out and redrawn until the final image is resolved.
