"Lucian Freud. New perspectives" (from 14 February to 18 June 2023)
To mark the centenary of the birth of the British painter Lucian Freud (1922-2011) the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza and the National Gallery in London are presenting a retrospective that features around 50 works.
Freud, one of the most outstanding figurative painters of the modern age, was born in Berlin and emigrated to London with his family in 1933 when the Nazis came to power. His father was a renowned architect, his mother studied art history, and his grandfather was the famous inventor of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud. The exhibition is divided into various sections that offer an approximately chronological survey of the painter's evolution and subject matter that span the decades of the artist's career: Becoming Freud, Early portraits, Intimacy, Power, The Studio, and Flesh.
