A great painter of people. He will be missed.
National Portrait Gallery show is fantastic.
Ashamed to say I’m not a great connoisseur of his work but thought that this work was one of the most outstanding at the National Portrait Gallery retrospective.
The exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery really proves that Freud is a true master.
I love the various nude tones.
Great posture used here.

why do we wait until someone is dead? before we allow their true worth to come into true focus?
I suppose I'm one of the few who cares little for these work. I just don't like it. There is little beauty to be seen and it lacks the composition that a true masterpiece must have.
i like artwork of Lucian Freud
for me it's the paint strokes , they look so unfinished, but make beautiful paintings, it's fantastic to stand in front of one
great art work
one of the best artists ever in my opinion
Freud likes giving people a chunky look. Great painter, fantastic technic and creation of tone, but I'd like to see him try portraying a personality, not just 'tarring them all with the same brush'. He doesn't approach his models as people, but as objects...That's my impression...but it works...
I adore his works and admired his attitude. He said he did not want to paint the subject he did not like. So he refused to paint Prince Charles. The Queen is the only one he painted from Royal family. I rang him to give me appointiment to make a video but declined because he said he was ill. Its a great shame for me I never met him. The best portrait artist I have ever admired and inspired.
This is a 'thin' person, compared to many of his other nudes.
Hindium, he always painted big people except Kate moss. Its a shame Eric does not like him. He was a most famous living portrait artist in 21st century when he was alive. His portraits were $1million. It is such a shame I never met him. I went to his exhibition but he did not turn up as he was ill so they said. Many people are following his style now. May be Eric just like the traditional realism in portraits. in Pre- Rafael art. Its a matter of individual taste.
Hindium. this is his self protrait. i think this is second one.

His work is so intense..! I love it
All these Art Emperors live based on the death Artist’s Legacies with no doubt. While the Artist is alive, even they don't accept his/her call in any time. Please don’t give me wrong. you can test them yourselves. Mail them for a review or exhibition of your artworks, you will find your applications in a trashcan quite soon. They live in nice mansions or a House of Art with proudly call Art Galleries/Museums and the artists are suffering of poverty and struggling to pay the bills to live. Well. That kind of artist will be very lucky if he/she sells some paintings to those Emperors/Art Collectors, and they call him/her back in 5 to ten years if he/she is still alive or death. The good news will be if he/she is death to make some money but tons of money. They take your paintings and make their own stories about them and make them as an iconic painting and that is the time that their lottery matches for a jackpot. Basically, we all work for them for free. When they call their selves the Emperors, another meaning of that is the Slavery Masters. We create works of art until we are alive with no respect or appreciation and the end, they take advantage of them mercilessly. I am not venge it to discuss deeply but reality is the word of Lord. In the whole history of art, Mark Rothko was realized the exact meaning of Art Emperors which I am talking about.
Abstract Expressionism - I think I understand your statement and agree with it. I know a former art dealer, who told me, if there is no work to sell, the art world isn't interested in promoting an artist - ie. if the paintings have been bought privately and nothing much is being resold. So a superb artist can go under the radar because they are not going to make the art emperors any dosh. I knew Otto Frello - a unique Danish artist, who risks this fate.
