Lucian Freud “A not so still life” private view at Luxembourg and Dayan gallery, London

Luxembourg and Dayan is pleased to announce ‘A Not So Still Life’, an exhibition of two significant late paintings by Lucian Freud (1922–2011), presented alongside other modern works such as Marcel Duchamp in juxtapositions that invite new associations and insights into the art of a 20th century master. Lucian Freud created an entirely new genre in the depiction of the human figure. His ‘naked portraits’ present subjects as pure animal forms not dissimilar from inanimate still life objects, while at the same time rendering painted flesh with an extraordinary, penetrating humanity. Lucian Freud A Not So Still Life runs until April 5th at Luxembourg and Dayan, London. Photo Ekaterina Bazhenova
