Studying Freud...

Lucian Freud, grandson of Sigmund exists like a colossus in contemporary British painting. Some find his work obscene not because of its explicit nature, but because they make you, as a viewer feel so unwelcome and excluded. At the same time, his relentless attention to microscopic details makes you uneasy, makes you aware of your own blemishes, your warts, patches or freckles - on the surface or inside. Appreciating Freud is akin to an autistic experience.
