Lucian Freud: Monumental
Acquavella Galleries is pleased to present Lucian Freud: Monumental, a loan exhibition focusing on the artist's naked portraits, a subject that has long enjoyed special significance in his oeuvre. Curated by the artist's longtime studio assistant and friend, David Dawson, Monumental will include thirteen major paintings, including depictions of his most important models from the 1990s and 2000s. The exhibition begins with work from 1990, when Freud began painting the performance artist Leigh Bowery, who is featured here in two works. Inspired by Bowery's impressive physique, Freud began working on a larger scale that emphasized the physical presence of his subjects. These large-scale portraits ushered in a new sense of monumentality in the artist's body of work. Also on view is Benefits Supervisor Sleeping, one of two paintings in the show from the mid-1990s of Sue Tilley, the other essential model from this pivotal time in Freud's career. Dawson himself as well as Freud's familiar whippets also make multiple appearances in paintings in the exhibition.
