Showcase: Lucian Freud

The grandson of Sigmund Freud, Lucian Michael Freud was one of the foremost portraitists of the 20th century.

His painting After Cézanne, notable because of its unusual shape, was purchased by the National Gallery of Australia for $7.4 million. The top left section of this painting has been ‘grafted’ on to the main section below, and closer inspection reveals a horizontal line where these two sections were joined.
