The Death of a Master: Lucian Freud

After Cézanne, by Lucian Freud. (Detail).
Lucian Freud's paintings were uncompromising and brutal, yet they had a tenderness for the humanity of their subjects. I have a quote by him stuck onto my computer which I frequently fail to live up to: "I work every day and night. I don't do anything else. There is no point otherwise." I am always in awe of such single-minded determination to perfect one's art, of people who make art their life.
