FREUD MUSEUM LONDON EXHIBITION
Lucian Freud: The Painter and His Family
The Freud Museum London marks the centenary of the great British artist Lucian Freud with a major exhibition of his work in the home of his grandfather, Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis. Curated by art critic Martin Gayford, the exhibition features paintings, drawings, family photographs, and letters drawn from galleries and private collections, Freud Museum archives and members of Lucian Freud’s family.
The Freud Museum was the final home of Sigmund Freud, who came to London with his family in 1938, after fleeing Nazi-occupied Vienna. The family were able to bring nearly all their belongings with them, including Freud's collection of over 2,000 antiquities, and his original psychoanalytic couch. Sigmund Freud recreated his study much as it had been in Vienna. Preserved as it was during his lifetime, visitors can also view the iconic couch on which Freud's patients told him their dreams.
