Horrendous news these days. Someone running riot in Norway, shooting kids. Amy Winehouse dead. And also painter Lucian Freud died. As his name suggests, his roots are Austrian. His young years connected with Brandenburg. His work much about human flesh. Not the glorifying of beauty but the documentation of how things are. He painted people, fat, old, pregnant people. Including himself, showing the process of aging. Exhibit A: Lucian Freud, the gambler. I do hope, that at the point in future, when aliens will find nothing more about humanity but some documents left, his paintings will still be around.
