Freud and Freud

The Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna has stolen a march over the Freud Museum in London. The former is currently showing Lucian Freud: In Private: Photographies [sic] by David Dawson. This is a joint venture with the Kunsthistorisches Museum, which is displaying a selection of Lucien’s key works. The excuse is that Sigmund was Lucian's grandfather, who encouraged the lad's artistic bent. Dawson was Lucian's assistant for years and took many photos. This example is Falling Over (2005). Lucian must have hated women to make beautiful models look so ugly (CLICK).
