Interesting documentary about the sitters and the late artist Lucian Freud. Many times we are too busy looking and drawing the sitters’ exterior we may miss out on capturing the “being”.
Summary clipped from the youtube post
“Lucian Freud ‘Portraits’ is an analysis of the artist as seen through the eyes of those who have been best placed to study him – his sitters. Over a period of two years, film-maker Jake Auerbach and Freud’s biographer William Feaver filmed many of Freud’s subjects, ranging from the late Duke of Devonshire and the now Dowager Duchess of Devonshire to fellow painters David Hockney and Celia Paul; from friends such as Brigadier Andrew Parker Bowles to ex-lovers, daughters and grand-daughters.”
