Synopsis

This is the most comprehensive monograph to date on the Frank Auerbach (b. 1931), one of the preeminent artists of our age, widely admired for his vivid, impulsive depictions of the world around him. Often compared to Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud in terms of the revolutionary and powerful nature of his work, Auerbach s depictions of people and the urban landscapes near his London studio make him one of the greatest painters alive today. Spanning the length of his career from the 1950s to the present, this expanded edition includes 250 additional works bringing it up to date. In the back of the book there are small-scale chronological sequencing of full-colour reproductions, which depict nearly every painting made by the artist, from his student years up until this publication. At age 90, he looks back over his life and his work, rich with breakthroughs in painting and masterful individuality.
