          Auerbach has said that since arriving in London, he has never spent more than 5 weeks anywhere else. As a result he has become incredibly familiar with his surroundings, painting the same scene at different times of year and times of day. He makes drawings on the street in the early morning, before returning to his studio to work on the paintings in the afternoon, using expressive directional brushstrokes to suggest London’s buildings, street lamps and passers-by.

          Artist details

          Born in 1931 in Berlin to Jewish parents, Auerbach was sent to England in 1939 to escape Nazism. After studying in a number of art schools, including the Royal College of Art, he moved to Camden, where he has lived and painted in the same studio since the 1950s. Frank Auerbach’s paintings are some of the most resonant, inventive and perpetually alive works of art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Since his early works, his intentions have been consistent: ‘To record the life that seemed to me to be passionate and exciting and disappearing all the time’.
