The Taschen Basic Art Album series is the perfect and best value for money introduction to the work of Lucian Freud. As the scans below demonstrate it is packed with info and examples of his work.

I can't recommend this book highly enough for students wanting to know about his life and how he arrived at specific works; or indeed for anyone with even just a passing interest in the work of one of the great names in modern art.


British artist, Lucian Freud was widely considered the most important figurative painter of the 2nd half of the 20th century. Master portraitist and specialist in nudes, Freud used impasto to create depth and intensity while restrained his color palate to mostly muted hues. His portraits may have been physically unflattering to their subjects, but they were honest, frank, and unapologetic. "I paint people," Freud once said, "not because of what they are like, not exactly in spite of what they are like, but how they happen to be."

Available in over 20 languages, "Taschen's Basic Art" series offers budget-minded readers quality books on the greatest artists of all time. The neat, slick format and nice price tag make Basic Art books perfect for collecting. Every book in the "Basic Art" series features: a detailed chronological summary of the artist's life and work, covering the cultural and historical importance of the artist; approximately 100 color illustrations with explanatory captions; and, a concise biography.
