Bio: Lucian Michael Freud, OM, CH 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.
Quote of the day
“Nay, Spring was o'er-happy and knew not the reason, And Summer dreamed sadly, for she thought all was ended In her fulness of wealth that might not be amended; But this is the harvest and the garnering season, And the leaf and the blossom in the ripe fruit are blended.”
