Freud's Eggs

The late Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, the youngest of the six Mitford sisters, had an enduring friendship with artist Lucian Freud. She kept chickens and used to take him some eggs when she visited him. So in 2002 he painted Four Eggs on a Plate as a gift for her. The painting comes up for grabs in Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening Auction in London on 1 July, estimated at £100,000 to £150,000 (CLICK),
