Lucien Freud - Naked Man, Back View (1991-1992)

For more than half a century, Freud has concentrated on depicting the human face and figure in paintings, drawings, and etchings. Earlier examples are smaller in scale and crafted in a distinctive, meticulous style with extreme precision. Freud's major compositions of the last thirty years are considerably larger, with heavily worked and impastoed surfaces. The model for this picture, Leigh Bowery (Australian, 1961–1994), was a performance artist in London.
