Lucian Freud is widely regarded as one of the greatest living artists, and drawing is fundamental to his development as an artist and to how he sees. Speaking recently about his early years he claimed, "I would have thought I did 200 drawings to every painting in those early days. I very much prided myself on my drawing." Drawing became an important part of Freud’s life from the start and a famous sketchbook, The Freud-Schuster Book, has survived dating back to January 1940, when Freud was in Snowdonia with Stephen Spender, as do sketches from Freud’s life as a merchant seaman on a cargo vessel in the Atlantic in 1941. His then surreal style lent itself to illustrations and his fascination with animals, birds, and fish was revealed in the famous line drawings he produced for Nicholas Moore’s book of poems, The Glass Tower (1944). This volume charts Freud’s work on paper, including the etchings, over his entire career. It includes the formative early work, the sketches in preparation for painting his masterpiece, Large Interior W11 (after Watteau) (1983), the sketches of the completed painting in the studio and the astonishing later studies of his mother. The book ends with the etchings of recent years. The works on paper are an extraordinary achievement, providing even deeper insights into the work of perhaps the greatest figurative artist of our time.

The former and only review to this book up to this date is absolutely wrong. I do not know if it was referred to the former edition printed in Great Britain (Jonathan Cape/Random House, 2008), but the book I got from Amazon within the last month was printed with care by Rizzoli, in Italy (2009). In addition, it has two excellent essays.

Drawing is a misterious thing! Sometimes drawings tell us more than paintings! Interesting to see the evolution of the technique in drawing of Freud!

I have one and bought another as a gift and they loved it.
A keeper and great for gifting even if not artistic.

There are about 20 drawings in this collection that are haunting and mesmerizing; the other couple of hundred odd drawings are banal wothless filler. Also, unfortunately the quality of this book is terrible; the binding fell apart after a couple of readings and the page quality is cheap. If you are looking for a cheap book with a couple of dozen amazing drawings and a lot of crap in between, this is for you. But, I'm sure another publisher will figure it out and publish a much more satisfying book in the future. Thus - disappointing purchase leaving me wanting something more.

The value of art books is often the manner in which the art is presented. In this fine Rizzoli monograph form 1009 Director of the Scottish National Gallery and Henry Moore Foundation, Richard Calvocoressi, has compiled a significant collection of works on paper in a manner that celebrates the studied genius of Lucian Freud. He is ably assisted by the Freud expert Sebastian Smee and together they have polished this little work with a sophistication rarely found in monographs.

Freud is quoted as having said "I would have thought I did 200 drawings to every painting in those early days. I very much prided myself on my drawing." The contents of this book certainly support that statement. Here, without the dynamic immediate impact of Freud's manipulation of massive amounts of paint on huge canvases, Freud's intense eye is focused on line, on personality, on detail, on the effects of light on his subject, and on the humor he finds there - human frailty.

LUCIAN FREUD ON PAPER charts Freud's work on paper, including the etchings, over his entire career, including the formative early work, the sketches in preparation for painting his masterpiece, Large Interior W11 (after Watteau) (1983), the sketches of the completed painting in the studio and the astonishing later studies of his mother. The book ends with the etchings of the years before his recent death. `The works on paper are an extraordinary achievement, providing even deeper insights into the work of perhaps the greatest figurative artist of our time.'
