Lucian Freud - New Perspectives

Mon-Thu: 10-6pm; Fri: 10-9pm; Sat-Sun: 10-6pm

This first major exhibition of Lucian Freud’s work in 10 years brings together paintings from more than seven decades.

The exhibition presents the paintings of one of Britain's most well-known figurative painters, Lucian Freud (1922–2011). It spans a lifetime of work, showing how Freud’s painting changed during 70 years of practice from his early and intimate works to his well-known, large-scale canvasses and his monumental naked portraits.

Through more than 60 paintings, you will see the development of an artist: paintings of powerful public figures are followed by private studies of friends and family; the familiar, domestic setting gives way to the artist’s paint-splattered studio – a place that becomes both stage and a subject in its own right – and the approximated features of his earliest paintings are complemented by the expertly rendered flesh of his final works.

Tickets: £26.00 (Concession: £24.00 )
