Lucian Freud in Gemeentemuseum The Hague 16 Feb - 8 June '08
German-born British painter Lucian Freud (b. 1922) is famous around the world for his intimate and revealing portraits and nudes. With his keen eye and highly personal approach, he lays bare the hidden feelings and thoughts of his subjects. The aim is not to achieve any superficial or flattering likeness, but to reveal the essence of the subject's inner being. The results are impressive and extremely private portraits of vulnerable individuals. The first ever Dutch retrospective of this extraordinary and unconventional artist opens on 16 February at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. It runs until 8 June 2008. www.gemeentemuseum.nl
