9780500239254: Frank Auerbach: Speaking and Painting

Born in Berlin in 1931 to Jewish parents, the eight-year-old Auerbach was sent to England in 1939 to escape the Nazi regime. His parents stayed behind and died in a concentration camp in 1943. Now in his eighties, Auerbach is still producing his distinctly sculptural paintings of friends, family and surroundings in north London, where he has made his home since the war. The art historian and curator Catherine Lampert has had unique access to the artist since 1978 when she first became one of his sitters. With an emphasis on Auerbachs own words, culled from her conversations with him and archival interviews, she provides a rare insight into his professional life, working methods and philosophy. Auerbach also reflects on the places, people and inspirations that have shaped his life. These include his experiences as a refugee child, finding his way in the London art world of the 1950s and 1960s, his friendships with Lucian Freud, Francis Bacon and Leon Kossoff, among many others, and his approaches to looking and painting throughout his career. For anyone interested in how an artist approaches his craft or his method of capturing reality this is essential reading.

Recensione:

A well-illustrated and comprehensive monograph on a great artist. It pays special attention to Auerbach's own version of the sources for his inspiration rather than imposing a theory on him. --Guardian

The book is a beautiful object, full of superb reproductions and photos ... This is a terrific read ... it only leaves you longing for more. --Independent

Fresh, gripping and generously illustrated. --Financial Times

Admirers of Auerbach's art ... must joyously welcome Catherine Lampert's fascinating new book ... the saga of a persecuted immigrant climbing that remarkable freedom ladder to become part of art's firmament and the chaotic history of our times. --Camden Review

A rich biography peppered with dialogue from their conversations, bringing his thoughts on art to life. --Artists and Illustrators

One of the truest books on painters and paintings I have ever read. --Daily Telegraph

A part-biography, part-examination of the two halves of Auerbach's work; urban landscapes and portraiture. --Ham & High

The way he sees spaces in forms is akin to discovering something in astronomy. --Porter

Gives insight into the methods that result in his extraordinary paintings. --Tate Etc

A fascinating and thorough portrait of a major and internationally renowned figure as seen through his eyes. --The Artist

A standard work for many years to come. --World of Interiors

Reading this book subtly raises one's awareness of his imagery, sharpening one's excitement at the prospect of seeing the whole trajectory of his art. --Literary Review

This book is a necessity for all Auerbach's admirers, for it contains much fresh and vivid detail about his life and work. --Art Quarterly

A rare chance to listen to the lovely and self-deprecating wisdom of painter Frank Auerbach. --AnOther
