Writings: “Take a Left at My Mailbox,” by Miriam Sagan
In a career spanning more than six decades, Lucian Freud has redefined portraiture and the nude through his unblinking analysis of the human form. Although best known as a painter, Freud has made etching a constant part of his work since 1982. In Lucian Freud: The Painter’s Etchings (Museum of Modern Art, $40), the full scope of Freud’s etchings are represented, ranging from early experiments of the 1940s to the increasingly complex compositions created since his rediscovery of the medium in the early 1980s. Freud’s etchings are based on an intense process of observation, but his fluid style reflects the more painterly and gestural approach that he developed in his works on canvas. Freud has described his work as autobiographical, stating in 1974, “It is about myself and my surroundings. It is an attempt at a record. I work from the people that interest me and that I care about, in rooms that I live in and know.” The book includes more than seventy etchings, juxtaposed with twenty-three paintings and seven drawings.
