Freud, Interrupted by David Kamp (2012)

Lucian Freud, who died last year, still creating masterpieces at 88, was intensely private, rejecting the idea that an artist’s life mattered to his art. But Sigmund’s grandson, arguably the greatest portrait painter of his era, forged his closest bonds in his studio. With two major Freud retrospectives in view, David Kamp learns that those who sat for him—duchesses, drag queens, most of his women, and many of his children—will never forget what they discovered.

“It has affected my entire life.”


An English man has been diagnosed with a medical condition called “chronic lateness.”

“I got up at 8.15am to go to a David Bowie film at the DCA that started at seven o’clock. That gave me 11 hours to get ready. I knew I was going there — and I was 20 minutes late. I get down about it and it’s disturbing for other folk when you arrive late.”
