Phoebe Hoban, author of authoritative biographies of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Alice Neel, now turns her attention to Lucian Freud (1922–2011), grandson of Sigmund and one of the greatest painters England has produced.

Hoban follows Freud from his birthplace in Berlin to London (where he moved as a boy in the 1930s) and shows him with Picasso and Giacometti during a brief sojourn in Paris in his twenties. She illuminates how he developed his mature style, which produced meticulously detailed images that include portraits of his famously beautiful first two wives and his artist friends (among them the painter Francis Bacon) as well as Kate Moss and Queen Elizabeth II.

Freud worked tirelessly in his studio and spent as long as several years on a single painting, which could require hundreds of hours of sittings. His insightful portraits went beyond exteriors to reveal the subjects’ inner lives. Lucian Freud will reveal how this stunning talent was developed, supported, and wielded.
