    1. photographer david dawson s been hanging with the freud and family for long time, this beautiful coffe table size book documents some of the late paintings, portraits mostly, and behind the scenes activities like hanging in the back garden, hanging pictures in shows, hanging with lucian in the neighborhood so intimate photos, and fascinating look in the studio and house of lucian freud and his subjects very little , but important texts by dawson too vast majority is big format color photos.



    2. Picture book, really a collection of lush presumably 4 x 5 s photographs of Lucian Freud, his paintings, his studio, his models, his general milieu scant text, would have liked
