To mark the centenary of the birth of the British painter Lucian Freud the Museo Thyssen is presenting from 14 February to 18 June a retrospective that features around 50 works.

Lucian Freud. New Perspectives is divided into various sections that offer an approximately chronological survey of the painter’s evolution and subject matter that span the seven decades of the artist’s career: Becoming Freud, devoted to the artist’s early works; Early portraits, works that already reveal Freud’s desire to capture the essence of his sitters; Intimacy, which focuses on his preference for depicting people from his close circle; Power, where portraits of individuals whom he agreed to paint on the basis that they accepted his conditions for working; The Studio, Freud’s creative space which became a subject in his art and Flesh, featuring the last naked portraits, so physically displeasing that they may seem prurient.
