“I have often, as an exercise and as a sustenance, painted before an object down to the smallest accidents of its visual appearance. But the day left me sad and with an unsatiated thirst. The next day I let the other source run, that of imagination through the recollection of the forms and I was then reassured and appeased.” —Odilon Redon

Lucian Freud: Portrait of Frances CostelloeLucian Michael Freud (8 December 1922 – 20 July 2011) was a German-born British painter.

His works are noted for their psychological penetration, and for their often discomforting examination of the relationship between artist and model.
