Lucian Freud, Animals Dressed.

'Lucian Freud and the Animal'

A unique exploration of Lucian Freud s intimate portrayal of animals throughout
his career, this sumptuous exhibition catalog ranges from early pen-and-ink studies
to the later large oil portraits. Consummate painter of the flesh Freud painted
animals even more tenderly than people. As with his nude portraits in which no
blemish, fold of fat or sign of exhaustion escapes his eye, no detail is lost in the
animal portraits, especially his depictions of the affecting symbiotic relationship
between animal and human owner. The catalog begins with a reproduction of
a poetry book he illustrated in his twenties, The Glass Tower, made during the
war in 1944 of pen-and-ink sketches of dead animals and concludes with oils
of solitary horses. Freud, who spoke of his human models as animals dressed,
makes no distinction between his models, human or animal, in his search for their
true natures.
