In conjunction with the exhibition Lucian Freud. New perspectives, the museum’s department of Modern Painting has organised a lecture series that will reassess the work of this British artist from a range of different viewpoints.
The theatricality of the studio - Freud’s creative laboratory and the stage for so many of his works, in which paint functions as a material and a narrative element - is one of the concepts discussed in this series. Other themes include the development of the idea of intimacy in the artist’s magnificent portraits, particularly those of people from his close personal circle; his relationship with the different models who posed for him over the years; and the numerous references to the Old Masters that are so notably present in his work.
