Museum of Fine Arts, Boston will soon host a momentous exhibition surrounding the self-portraits by the late iconic figurative painter, Lucian Freud. While the modern art master is known for painting portraits of close acquaintances, it is Freud’s series of self-portraits that have left a deep impression in the fine art world.
The forthcoming presentation will chronicle Freud’s decades-spanning self-portraits, portraying the artist as a young boy to an old man in his unmistakable painterly style. “With more than 40 works on canvas, paper, and etching plate that span the 1940s to the early 21st century, this exhibition assembles a lifetime of self-portraits,” said MFA Boston in a statement.
“Lucian Freud: The Self-Portraits” will be on view at MFA Boston starting February 25.

Reflection (Self-Portrait), 1985. "My work is purely autobiographical. It is about myself and my surroundings. It is an attempt at a record. I work with people that interest me, and that I care about and think about, in rooms that I live in and know.—Lucian Freud" #lucianfreud #art #freud
