Lucian Freud (1922-2011), widely regarded as the greatest figurative painter of our time, spent seven months painting a portrait of the art critic Martin Gayford. The daily narrative of their encounters takes us into that most private place, the artist's studio, and to the heart of the working methods of this modern master - both technical and subtly psychological. From this emerges an understanding of what a portrait is, but something else is also built up: a portrait, in words, of Freud himself.

Full of wry and revealing observations, this is a book not quite like any other: the inside story of how it feels to pose for a remarkable artist, and be transformed into a work of art.

“Definitely one of my favorite books on Freud (and art in general)”

Martin Gayford is one of the few people who get to boast they've sat for an artist as amazing as Lucian Freud. In this thoroughly engaging diary-style book, Gayford narrates his experience of sitting for a... More
