Lucian Freud (1922 – 2011), grandson of Sigmund Freud, is best known for his thickly painted portraits and nude figures. He painted a fascinating range of sitters from gangsters to Kate Moss and the Queen. His 1995 painting 'Benefits Supervisor Sleeping' sold for £17.2 million at auction in 2008, and at the time, it was the highest price paid for an artwork by a living artist. He was an intriguing character who was deeply committed to his artwork, painting right up until his death in 2011. The talk will be given by lecturer Melanie Paice.
