Lucian Freud RIP

Lucian Freud died on Wednesday, aged 88. New York art dealer William Acquavella reports he died at his London home after an unspecified illness. As a painter, Freud could turn the most beautiful model into an ugly nude, as you can see from his Naked Portrait of a pregnant Kate Moss. This ability endeared him to the Brit. Anti-art Establishment. The BBC has posted a grovelling video by David Sillito about the great man and his art (title link). CLICK for a BBC slide show.
