This second volume of the Lucian Freud catalogue raisonné is the first attempt to comprehensively catalogue the artist’s oil paintings. Over 500 works in the volume are presented and fully catalogued by Catherine Lampert and Toby Treves, with separate entries on each work providing essential information, a provenance, and history of exhibition and literature, followed by individual remarks. Lampert and Treves’s comments include new analysis of the paintings, informed by their collaborative research and collective knowledge of Freud’s oeuvre. Almost every work is reproduced in colour, including many for the first time. The catalogue contains several essays by contributors including the critic and Freud specialist Sebastian Smee, National Gallery research fellow Jacob Simon, and curator and art historian Colin Wiggins. A chronology of Freud’s life and work, comprehensive lists of solo and group exhibitions, and a bibliography provide a full overview of Freud’s career and critical responses to it, making the catalogue raisonné an indispensable tool for research.
