Lucian Freud Catalogue Raisonné of the Prints - to be published in May
A record of every print Freud made, from early linocuts of the 1930s to his last etching published in 2007.
This first volume of the Lucian Freud catalogue raisonné focuses on the artist’s prints. The only complete volume of Freud’s prints, the book builds upon the work of earlier cataloguers and adds much new material which has come to light since the artist’s death. The volume records every print Freud made, from the early linocuts of the 1930s to his last etching published in 2007. Each work—including uneditioned etchings and unique proofs—is reproduced and fully catalogued by Toby Treves. Treves’s remarks include clear, precise technical detail for specialists and are informed by his knowledge of the wider oeuvre. An essay by the critic and Freud specialist Sebastian Smee, and an account of working with Freud by his main printmaker, Marc Balakjian, provide further insights into this part of the artist’s oeuvre.
Toby Treves, ICRA Board member, is an independent art historian, a former collections curator of twentieth century British Art at Tate and co-author of the forthcoming catalogue raisonné of Lucian Freud's paintings.
