9780500289716: Man with a Blue Scarf: On Sitting for a Portrait by Lucian Freud

“An extraordinary record of a great artist in his studio, it also describes what it feels like to be transformed into a work of art.” ―ARTnews

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 the reader 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 created: a portrait, in words, of Freud himself. This is not a biography, but a series of close-ups: the artist at work and in conversation at restaurants, in taxis, and in his studio. It takes one into the company of the painter for whom Picasso, Giacometti, and Francis Bacon were friends and contemporaries, as were writers such as George Orwell and W. H. Auden.

The book is illustrated with many of Lucian Freud’s other works, telling photographs taken by David Dawson of Freud in his studio, and images by such great artists of the past as van Gogh and Titian who are discussed by Freud and Gayford.

Full of wry observations, the book reveals the inside story of how it feels to pose for a remarkable artist and become a work of art. 63 illustrations, 57 in color

Descrizione libro Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A beautifully produced paperback edition of the literary art book hailed as one of the best and most continually fascinating books about painting in recent memory. Lucian Freud (1922-2011) spent seven months painting a portrait of the art critic Martin Gayford. Gayford describes the process chronologically, from the day he arrived for the first sitting through to his meeting with the couple who bought the finished painting. As Freud creates a portrait of Gayford, so the art critic produces his own portrait of the notoriously private artist, recounting their wide-ranging conversations and giving a rare insight into Freuds working practice. The book is illustrated throughout with photographs by David Dawson of Freud at work, with paintings by Freud from the 1940s to the present, and images by other artists discussed by Freud with Gayford. The result vividly conveys what it is like to be on the inside of the process of creating a painting by a great artist. It will be read as long as Freuds work is admired . ( The Sunday Times ). If it is Freud who dominates this book, it is Gayfords achievement to bring him out and to do so with wit and humor as well as acute intelligence. Man with a Blue Scarf is literally inimitable no one else is going to get this opportunity. It s the real deal . ( The Guardian ). A journal, an act of confession, a character study of Freud, a piecemeal survey of art history and an investigation into the practicalities of portraiture . ( The Spectator ). Gayfords observations and Dawsons photos provide a unique insight into the working habits of the greatest painter of the human frame in all its infinite variety . ( New Statesman ). Freud is vividly surprising, potent and dynamic a portrait of an anarchic painter with views on everything from Leonardos failings to Princess Margarets voice . ( The Observer ).
