Cutie Painting

Lucian Freud, OM, who died last week at 88, was the most celebrated British figurative painter of the late 20th century. Freud was thought of primarily as a painter of portraits, but though his subjects were often well-known people, he was no society portraitist like Sargent. His purpose was not to flatter, and the starkness of his images have few precedents in the art of the human form. As he was and is a favorite artist of mine, above we show one of his cutest (and unlikely) images, a bunny sleeping on a chair, above. xxxo
