Item details
Poster of Lucian Freud’s Man's Head (Self-Portrait I), 1963-4 printed on fine art paper.

Freud painted many self-portraits over the course of his lifetime. This example, painted in the early 1960s, has much in common with the others from this decade. Limited to just the head and neck, the intense scrutiny that Freud was famous for viewing his models with is evident, not merely in the execution of the likeness, but in the facial expression; the viewer’s observation of the painting is reflected back at them twofold by the artist’s eyes.

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.

Our posters feature a white border and the image title. Printed and produced in the UK.
