Lucian Freud My Father

Artist's Talk: Jane McAdam Freud

On the 22nd February 2012 Jane McAdam Freud joined us to discuss her exhibition Lucian Freud My Father - A personal portrayal.  This is a video excerpt from that event.

Artist Jane McAdam Freud presented a large scale sculpture portraying her father Lucian Freud. It was unveiled and exhibited for the first time in the Freud Museum – once home to her great grandfather, Sigmund Freud. Jane spent many hours with her father in the months before his death in July 2011 making sketches for this new work. It was shown at the Freud Museum alongside other smaller scale work and preparatory sketches. The show ran from 25 January 2012 - 4 March 2012
