The very wonderful Lucian Freud died in London last night.

He seemed such a quintessentially English bohemian artist, that it was strange to think this was Sigmund Freud’s grandson: a raffish, gamblin’, drinkin’, fightin’ Londoner who mixed with gangsters as well as royalty, and fathered over a dozen children by almost as many women … none of which matters in the least of course beside the work he leaves behind for us – including the huge After Cézanne in the National Gallery of Australia. (Image: David Dawson)
