Lucian Freud, Gallery oi Modern Art, Edinburgh
At the Gallery of Modern Art, an artist is showing in broad daylight. The blinds are up and his paintings cluster round the windows to avoid the glare on glass of the sun. The walls lacing the windows are entirely empty. Rarely in a major exhibition at paintings is there so much space in which to think (consider the brand new visual clutter ol the National Gallery on the Mound).
This subtly sensitive but highly individual and deliberate hang was not surprisingly carried out by the artist himsell. Practicality blends with intense thought. In his painting, he goes lurther. Out at the llesh oozes the mind. Familiarity portrays strangeness. Gentle but without sentimentality, Freud's portraits climb right into the skin at his subjects, leaving them exposed tor all to see. Freud disturbs inner light and darkness vulnerable to daylight and critical eyes.
Freud's reality can be shocking. A portrait at his mother lays her on her back with her hands upturned like a baby. Her mouth and eyes are distant with age and sad. A naked woman sleeps on the old couch in Freud's studio (the setting tor most of his portraits) her breasts bursting with weight and etched with veins. Her leg lalls open — there are no secret lolds or leasing mysteries. Her body has been iormed with the excruciating honesty most people reserve tor private contemplation.
Freud’s realismpenetrates to that end. The rythym at his brush tollows the rythym oi the human body, the
muscles, ﬂesh and bones. There is no underdrawing. There is no llashy colour to distract. Freud sculpts his paint as directly as he contronts his subjects, all at whom are triends or relations, people who can trust him with their eyes closed and their clothes oil.
In this exhibition several early paintings made in the turtles, show a
young Freud laying down his
knowledge. The sable brush, sensuous down to the last line detail of the halt-moon on his tirst wile's nails, makes illustration into lite. Exchanging sable tor hog-hair, Freud bristles into his mature technique -there are strokes at his triend Francis Bacon, angles at Egon Shiele, tones ot Stanley Spencer— like these artists, Freud is a major ligure in the art oi the twentieth
century. (Alice Bain)
