Goodbye Mr. Freud

Leigh Bowery by Lucien Freud

I did not realize until today that Lucien Freud died this past July. There is no other artist alive who can replace him. No joke! When you would have thought there was nothing left to say about realist painting along came Lucien.  He manages to make you not only see but feel the human figure. Most figurative art is a simulation but with Freud the flesh is real like a communion wafer.
