R.I.P. Lucien Freud, 1923-2011

It seems there are just way too many deaths in the art community this year.

I am sorry to report that Wednesday night saw the passing of Lucien Freud. After a brief illness, he died in his home at the age of 88. Dubbed "The greatest living realist" by one art critic in the 1980's, Lucien's work was the subject of a large retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1993.

  1. Yes, it seems that the age of giants is coming to an end. Lucien Freud has left an indelible mark on the world of art. Rest in peace, Master Freud.
