Lucian Freud: Catalogue Raisonné of the Prints receives glowing review
The first volume of the much-anticipated Lucian Freud catalogue raisonné, catalogued and edited by ICRA board member Toby Treves, has received commendable reviews in the most recent edition of the British Art Journal.
As the only complete volume of Freud’s prints, Treves’ work builds upon the efforts of past cataloguers to document every print Freud had made, from the early linocuts of the 1930s to his last etching published in 2007. Supplemented with clear, precise technical detail from Treves, the result is “a handsome production, impeccably designed and produced.”
The British Art journal justly noted, “publisher and authors have done admirably by one of Britain’s most distinguished artists with this impeccable, rigorous and beautiful book.”
Lucian Freud: Catalogue Raisonné of the Prints has also been shortlisted for the British Book Design and Production Awards 2022, in the ‘Scholarly, Academic and Reference Book’ category.
