Frank Auerbach by William Feaver( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the most comprehensive publication to date and the only book in print on the work of Frank Auerbach, a painter who in recent years has become one of the preeminent artists of our age, widely admired for his vivid, impulsive, depictions of the world around him." "Auerbach, who was born in Berlin in 1931 and came to Britain when he was eight, paints, repeatedly, people he knows well and places he is familiar with. His drawings and paintings are strikingly immediate; their impact has urgency; they relate in various ways as much to certain preferred Old Masters as to the contemporary artists with whom he tends to be associated, notably Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud." "The book is definitive, featuring as it does 200 color plates together with a separate reference section comprising around 1,000 images-many of them not previously reproduced."--Jacket

Lucian Freud drawings by Lucian Freud( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From his earliest years as a child prodigy, Lucian Freud prided himself on his virtuoso drawing skills. The interplay in his work between paper (for both drawing and etching) and canvas was a defining feature of his creative habits throughout his career, as Freud's foremost scholar and curator, William Feaver, establishes with this masterful overview of Freud's drawing output. The fruit of Feaver's privileged access to Freud's studio, Lucian Freud Drawings includes more than 100 drawings, around half of which have never been exhibited or published, from the 1940s up to the artist's death in July 2011. Examined here are portraits of Freud's mother and father, his children and close friends-among them the painter Francis Bacon and artist Leigh Bowery-as well as landscapes and studies of animals. Spanning more than seven decades, this beautifully produced volume illuminates the very foundations of this master draftsman's oeuvre

Lucian Freud on John Constable by Lucian Freud( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" 'All Constable's work is erotic in the true sense' says Lucian Freud in a conversation with William Feaver about what Constable's work means to him. This conversation took place while Freud was selecting work for the Constable exhibition shown at the Grand Palais, Paris, from October 2002-January 2003. Due to the huge success of the exhibition, the catalogue (in which Freud's conversation was published in French only) sold out during the run of the exhibition, and is now no onger in print. This conversation has never before been published in English, and the British Council is now making it available in its entirity, in English, in a beautifully designed hard-back book. Sixty-one full-colour illustrations of work by Constable and Freud accompany the conversation. Lucian Freud has made a new etching 'Elm Tree after Constable' specially for this book, which is featured in detail on the cover, and in full inside the book" -- Press release by British Council ([1] leaf ; 30 cm.), loosely inserted
