Gallery Tour: The Painter and His Family
See the Freud Museum’s exhibition Lucian Freud: The Painter and His Family up close and personal on this guided tour led by Jamie Ruers, art historian, author and programmer at the Freud Museum. This is the first display of Freud’s work in the home of his grandfather Sigmund and aunt Anna. The show explores the artist’s childhood, family and friends, celebrating the lesser-known aspects of his life. These include his love of reading and lifelong fascination with horses, as well as his relationships with the former occupants of 20 Maresfield Gardens. Alongside his paintings and drawings, see Freud’s illustrated childhood letters, books he owned and book covers he designed. His sole surviving sculpture, Three-Legged Horse (1937), and early painting, Palm Tree (1944), will also be on display.
The series is organised jointly by Insiders/Outsiders, Jewish Renaissance magazine and the Lyons Learning Project.
