Freudian tip

An exhibition screened at Shrewsbury’s Old Market Hall will focus on one of the most celebrated painters of our time – Lucian Freud. For the first time in history the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, will bring together Freud’s complete collection of self-portraits.

Made up of more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings, the show explores a time when his attention was firmly placed on himself. The exhibition gives us insight into his psyche and development as a painter. Spanning nearly seven decades, from his earliest painted in 1939 to the final one 64 years later, Freud is one of very few artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency.

The Exhibition A Self Portrait will be on screen on Tuesday 14 January at noon. Tickets are priced at £13 – call 01743 281281 or visit oldmarkethall.co.uk.
