RIP Lucian Freud

  • Lucian Freud was a grandson of Sigmund Freud.
  • His brother’s daughter Emma is a screenwriter of Four Weddings and the Funeral.
  • He kept whippets for many years. His last pet was Pluto.
  • His first painting of a dog was ” Girl with a white dog”. It shows the artist’s first wife Kitti Garman, daughter of the British sculptor Jacob Epstein.
  • His ”Benefits Supervisor Sleepings”  has sold for 17.2m pounds and it is the world record for sale value of a painting by a living artist.  Roman Abramovich is said to be the buyer. The model was Sue Tilly and you can follow her  on Twitter/SueTilley1.
