Description

British artist, Lucian Freud is widely considered the most important figurative painter working today.

Master portraitist and specialist in nudes, Freud uses impasto to create depth and intensity while restraining his color palate to mostly muted hues.

His portraits may be physically unflattering to their subjects, but they are honest, frank, and unapologetic. "I paint people," Freud has said, "not because of what they are like, not exactly in spite of what they are like, but how they happen to be."Available in over 20 languages, "Taschen's Basic Art" series offers budget-minded readers quality books on the greatest artists of all time.

The neat, slick format and nice price tag make Basic Art books perfect for collecting.Every book in the "Basic Art" series features: a detailed chronological summary of the artist's life and work, covering the cultural and historical importance of the artist; approximately 100 color illustrations with explanatory captions; and, a concise biography.
