Accompanies the Credit Suisse exhibition at the National Gallery, London, 1 October 2022–22 January 2023 and the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum, Madrid, 14 February–18 June 2023.

Marking the centenary of Lucian Freud’s birth and featuring artworks which span the entirety of his 70-year career, New Perspectives offers fresh insights into one of the twentieth century’s most renowned figurative artists.

Texts explore original ideas ranging from the echoes of old master paintings in Freud’s work, to the complex impact of the artist’s relationship with his mother on his life and art, and the consideration of naked bodies within the context of 1980s British queer and political history. Throughout the book, leading contemporary women painters such as Tracey Emin and Chantal Joffe give insightful testimony to the relevance of Freud today.
