Lucian Freud Paintings
Sep 15–Nov 29, 1987
The Hirshhorn was the first and only North American venue for a major retrospective by the Berlin-born, British-based realist (1922-2011), grandson of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis. On view were 70 of his paintings and 14 of his drawings, chosen by the artist to emphasize certain themes, such as the use of particular models in nudes, portraits, and figure studies. Organized by the British Council.
