Lucian Michael Freud, OM, CH December 1922 – 20 July a German-born British painter. Known chiefly for his thickly impastoed portrait and figure paintings, he was widely considered the pre-eminent British artist of his time.
Lucian Freud - Portrait of John Deakin, What I really enjoyed about this portrait is the expression on the figures face; he has a whimsical feel with a misguiding smirk. The painting has great character.
