Lucian Freud - December 8, 1922 - July 20, 2011

Lucian Freud passed away late Wednesday night, July 20, 2011, after a brief illness.  He was 88.

I never tire of sitting and reading his paintings.  He once told his biographer, Lawrence Gowing, 
“For me the paint is the person.”

His 2001 portrait of Queen Elizabeth II met with mixed reviews from the critics and public alike.
