"Some Thoughts on Painting"

"The aura given out by a person or object is as much a part of them as their flesh. The effect that they make in space is as bound up with them as might be their color or smell. The effect in space of two different human individuals can be as different as the effect of a candle and an electric light bulb. Therefore the painter must be as concerned with the air surrounding his subject as with that subject itself."

FREUD, Lucian – Some Thoughts on Painting (1954) in Theories and Documents of Contemporary Art: A Sourcebook of Artists’ Writings. STILES, Kristine, ed. lit.; SELZ, Peter, ed. lit. California [E.U.A.]: University of California Press, 1996. p. 221. ISBN 0-520-20253-8

"This photo of Lucian Freud working at night in his studio was taken by long time assistant David Dawson. The photo was part of an exhibition held by Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert to coincide with the book launch of Freud at Work (Knopf, 2006). The photo, along with a dozen others, was reproduced by the catalog put forward by the Centre Pompidou for its recent exhibition Lucian Freud. L’Atelier (March 10 2010 – July 19 2010)" [source]
