4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 245 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."--Dust jacket
