Lucian Freud (1922-2011) Lunchtime Lecture: Freud’s Juvenilia
20 October 2022 1:00 pm
The third of a weekly series of events marking the centenary of the birth of celebrated artist, who came to this country from Berlin with his immediate family in 1933.
On Thursday 20 October at 1pm, an online talk by Elizabeth Lamle about Freud’s very early work and correspondence; the fourth, on Thursday 27 October at 2.30pm, an in-person visit to the major Freud retrospective at the National Gallery, preceded by an introductory lecture by art historian Monica Bohm-Duchen.
Elizabeth Lamle, a doctoral student in the field of art history and migration, who is currently working on a collaborative study of Lucian Freud’s juvenilia, examines key works from the National Portrait Gallery’s unexplored archive of Lucian Freud’s early drawings and correspondence. With material ranging from 1928 to 1951, she’ll share new insights into the development of Freud’s language, cultural identity and artistic practice.
1pm. FREE or suggested donation. ONLINE.
The series is organised jointly by Insiders/Outsiders, Jewish Renaissance magazine and the Lyons Learning Project.
