Lucian Freud - Portrait of John Deakin, 1963-64

Lucian Freud portraits the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna

This is Lucian Freud's study named 'Reflection', created in 1956. Freud interests me because of his relevant fascination with understanding the physical and mental mindset of the people he painted; portrayed through how he creates similar compositions of the same people, posing in different positions. I think this is a really interesting aspect of his painting along with the thick brush marks he makes with oil paint, layering the paint to help build depth.
