Take a close look at one of Britain’s most influential and talented artists.

Post-1982, Freud mostly focused on graphic pictures and this exhibition consists of 52 intriguing black and white body sketches he made during that period.

Overall it is a fascinating and powerful study of the human body you don’t want to look away from.

The exhibition is part of the Louisiana ‘On Paper’ series and is a follow-up on a retrospective of Lucian Freud at Louisiana in 2007. (LK)
