Lucian Freud's painting when at school, I desperately tried to copy his style and brush technique in my own work.
Freud's final painting, of his whippet, Eli and his assistant, David Dawson. It was unfinished.
None of this deterred from my over all affection toward his work. His life time achievement as a British painter and the influence he has had on so many - including myself in my youth. It is a worthy show that must be seen, if only to uncover to others, as it did to me, the Freud paintings you know much less well.
