Frank Auerbach

SKU: 978-1849763936
  • Revered for his resonant, inventive, and unapologetically alive paintings, Frank Auerbach draws on both the people and urban landscapes near his studio in Camden Town, London, for inspiration. His intentions have been consistent: 'What I wanted to do was to record the life that seemed to me to be passionate and exciting and disappearing all the time.' This visually arresting publication accompanied a retrospective of Auerbach’s work presented at Tate Britain and the Kunstmuseum Bonn in 2015. The exhibition, which provided a wholly fresh survey of Auerbach’s career, was curated by Catherine Lampert—who has sat for Auerbach since 1978—in close consultation with the artist. The only accessible, affordable survey of Auerbach’s work on the market, this much-needed assessment includes a new essay by art historian T. J. Clark. The book also features statements from the artist and previously unseen documentary photographs.
