For the first time the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, is bringing together an exhibition of Lucian Freud’s self-portraits. Intertwined with artist biographies and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the galleries, this cinema event is informative, accessible and entertaining.

The exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself. One of the most celebrated painters of our time, Lucian Freud is also one of very few 20th-century artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency.

Reflection (Self Portrait), 1985 (oil on canvas) by Freud, Lucian (1922-2011); 56.2×51.2 cm; Private Collection; © The Lucian Freud Archive

Spanning nearly seven decades his self-portraits give a fascinating insight into both his psyche and his development as a painter, from his earliest portrait painted in 1939 to the final one executed 64 years later. When seen together, his portraits represent an engrossing study into the dynamic of ageing and the process of self-representation. This intensely compelling exhibition creates a unique opportunity for EXHIBITION ON SCREEN to reveal the life’s work of a master in one show.

Arrive from 2 P.M. to enjoy your cup of tea!
