The Life and Art of Lucian Freud with Christian Conrad

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. A deeply private individual, Freud mostly painted his friends and often their pets, but reached a level of notoriety to be considered one of the most influential British artists. 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.

This event is free to the public.

Join us for coffee and donuts!
