9780870707063: Lucian Freud: The Painter's Etchings

One of the foremost figurative artists working today, Lucian Freud has redefined portraiture and the nude through his unblinking scrutiny of the human form. Although he is best known as a painter, etching is integral to his practice. This volume accompanies a major Museum of Modern Art exhibition that will present the full scope of Freud's etchings, including some 75 works--from the rare early experiments of the 1940s to the increasingly complex compositions he has created since rediscovering the medium in the early 1980s. Written by exhibition curator Starr Figura, it also includes a selection of paintings and drawings that illuminate the crucial, cross-pollinating relationship between Freud's etchings and his works on canvas.
Freud is not a traditional printmaker: Treating the etching plate like a canvas, he stands the copper upright on an easel. He also typically depicts the same sitters in etchings as in paintings, demarcating their forms through meticulous networks of finely etched lines. Freud's etchings may either precede or follow the execution of paintings, and they are sometimes as large as, or larger than, their related canvases. But with their figures dramatically cropped or isolated against empty backgrounds, they achieve a startling new sense of psychological tension and formal abstraction.

Descrizione libro MODERN ART, 2007. Couverture rigide. Condizione libro: Neuf. Condizione sovraccoperta: Neuf. Un des plus grands artistes figuratifs de travail portrait aujourd'hui, Lucian Freud (britannique, né en Allemagne 1922) a redéfini et le nu à travers son examen sans ciller de la forme humaine. Bien que mieux connu comme un peintre, la gravure est devenu partie intégrante de sa pratique. Cette exposition présentera l'éventail complet des réalisations de Freud dans la gravure, dont soixante-quinze exemples allant de rares, les premières expériences dans les années 1940 pour les plus grands et complexes compositions créés depuis sa redécouverte du milieu dans les années 1980. Dans une installation cross-média et inhabituelle, il comprendra également une sélection de peintures et dessins connexes, éclairant la relation pollinisation croisée entre les gravures cruciale et peintures de Freud. Freud est pas un graveur traditionnel. Il traite la plaque de gravure comme une toile, debout cuivre à la verticale sur un chevalet. Il dépeint généralement les mêmes sitters à graver comme en peinture, toujours travailler directement à partir de ses modèles et de la démarcation de leurs formes à travers des réseaux méticuleux de lignes finement gravées. Mais avec leurs chiffres de façon spectaculaire recadrées ou isolés sur un fond vide, les eaux-fortes de Freud atteindre un nouveau sens étonnant de la tension psychologique et abstraction formelle. L'exposition sera accompagnée d'un catalogue entièrement illustré.---- Publication connexes 706 250 Lucian Freud: les eaux-fortes du peintre Starr Figura 2007 Relié, 144 pages ----------------------- Organisé par Starr Figura, conservateur adjoint, Département des Estampes et livres illustrés. One of the foremost figurative artists working today, Lucian Freud (British, born Germany 1922) has redefined portraiture and the nude through his unblinking scrutiny of the human form. Although best known as a painter, etching has become integral to his practice. This exhibition will present the full scope of Freud's achievements in etching, including some seventy-five examples ranging from rare, early experiments in the 1940s to the increasingly large and complex compositions created since his rediscovery of the medium in the early 1980s. In a dramatic and unusual cross-media installation, it will also include a selection of related paintings and drawings, illuminating the crucial, cross-pollinating relationship between Freud's etchings and paintings. Freud is not a traditional printmaker. He treats the etching plate like a canvas, standing the copper upright on an easel. He typically depicts the same sitters in etching as in painting, always working directly from his models and demarcating their forms through meticulous networks of finely etched lines. But with their figures dramatically cropped or isolated against empty backgrounds, Freud's etchings achieve a startling new sense of psychological tension and formal abstraction. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue. -----------------------------------Relié: 144 pages Editeur : Museum of Modern Art; Édition : illustrated edition (2 décembre 2007) Langue : Anglais ISBN-10: 087070706X ISBN-13: 978-0870707063.
