Author: Toby Treves
Publisher: Modern Art Press
About the Book:
This first volume of the Lucian Freud catalogue raisonné focuses on the artist’s prints. The only complete volume of Freud’s prints, the book builds upon the work of earlier cataloguers and adds much new material which has come to light since the artist’s death. The volume records every print Freud made, from the early linocuts of the 1930s to his last etching published in 2007.
Each work—including uneditioned etchings and unique proofs—is reproduced and fully catalogued by Toby Treves. Treves’s remarks include clear, precise technical detail for specialists and are informed by his knowledge of the wider oeuvre. An essay by the critic and Freud specialist Sebastian Smee, and an interview between art historian Martin Gayford and Freud’s main printmaker, Marc Balakjian, provide further insights into this part of the artist’s oeuvre.
