Lucian Freud (1922-2011): Considered one of the most important individuals in modern figure study, British artist Lucian Freud created realistic paintings that had thick textured surfaces.

Although famous for his realism, Freud’s early work is characterized by abstraction and surrealism. Join us as we journey through Freud’s work as he moves from an avant-garde style to the realistic paintings for which he was made famous. Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.
