Lucian Freud : the painter's etchings by Starr Figura ( Book )
16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the foremost artists working today, Lucian Freud had redefined portraiture and the nude through his frank scrutiny of the human form. Although he is best known as a painter, etching is integral to Freud's practice. This volume accompanies a major Museum of Modern Art exhibition presenting the full scope of Freud's etchings, along with a critical selection of related paintings and drawings. Organized by Starr Figura, Lucian Freud: The Painter's Etchings includes seventy etchings - from the artist's rare early experiments of the 1940s to the increasingly complex compositions he has created since rediscovering the medium in the early 1980s - juxtaposed with some twenty-two paintings and seven drawings. Figura's essay in this catalogue examines the dramatic dialogue among mediums in Freud's practice, and explores the crucial cross-pollinating relationship between his etchings and his works on canvas. Pared down to essentials of line, often depicting figures cropped or isolated against empty backgrounds, Freud's prints achieve a startling degree of psychological tension and formal abstraction. Etching is here revealed as a medium uniquely suited to Freud's distinct artistic goals."--Jacket
Lucian Freud portraits by Sarah Howgate ( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Portraits were central to the work of Lucian Freud (1922-2011). Working only from life, the artists claimed, "I could never put anything into a picture that wasn't actually there in front of me." This major retrospective catalogue surveys Freud's portraits across the seven decades of his career. Featuring the finest portraits from public and private collections around the world, the book explores the stylistic development and remarkable technical virtuosity of an artist regarded as one of the most innovative figurative painters the medium has known. Freud's chosen subjects were often his intimates--family members, friends, and artistic colleagues such as Frank Auerbach, Francis Bacon, Leigh Bowery, and David Hockney. Freud was a private man who rarely gave interviews, and his thoughts on the complex relationship between artist and sitter and the challenges of painting nudes and self-portraits are published here for the first time, documented in a series of interviews with Michael Auping, conducted between May 2009 and January 2011. An illustrated chronology of the artist's life provides fascinating insights into Freud's background as a grandson of Sigmund Freud, and his unorthodox artistic education
Lucian Freud : recent work by Catherine Lampert ( Book )
8 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Degas and the nude by George T. M Shackelford ( Book )
10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Degas and the Nude" is the first book in a generation to explore the artist's treatment of the nude from his early years in the 1850s and 1860s, through his triumphs in the 1880s and 1890s, all the way to his last decades when the theme dominated his artistic production in all media. With essays by leading American and French critics, it provides a new interpretation of Degas' evolving conception of the nude, situating it in the subject's broader context among his peers in nineteenth-century France. It explores how Degas exploited all of the body's expressive possibilities, how his vision of the nude informed his notion of modernity, and how he abandoned the classical or historical form in favor of a figure seen in her own time and setting--whether engaged in overtly carnal acts or just stepping out of an ordinary bath

Die von dieser Publikation begleitete Ausstellung in Wien ist in den Monaten vor seinem Tod im Juli 2011 in enger Zusammenarbeit mit dem Künstler konzipiert worden und somit die letzte, die Lucian Freud zu Lebzeiten selbst zusammengestellt hat. Werke aus seiner gesamten, siebzig Jahre währenden Schaffensperiode werden gezeigt, und erstmals sind jene Bilder hier vereint, die er selbst für seine wichtigsten Arbeiten hielt. Unter ihnen befinden sich einige seiner berühmtesten Gemälde: Selbstporträts, Bildnisse von Freuds Familienmitgliedern oder anderen Künstlern wie Francis Bacon, aber auch Landschaften und Stillleben. Zugleich erkennt man Freuds großes Interesse an den Werken der Alten Meister und der altägyptischen Kunst. Eine Hommage an einen großen Künstler - von ihm selbst als kostbares Vermächtnis autorisiert
