"My work is purely autobiographical. It is about myself and my surroundings... I work from the people that interest me... I use the people to invent my pictures with, and I can work more freely when they are there."
- Lucian Freud
Real Lives - brings some of Freud’s most iconic paintings, etchings and photographs, providing an ‘intimate glimpse into Freud’s Life.
