Lucian Freud's "Closer"

Bridgeman Images has licensed images for a Lucian Freud exhibition in Berlin

Earlier this year, Bridgeman Images licensed a range of artworks by British artist Lucian Freud to be used in the exhibition "Closer" at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin, Germany. The Lucian Freud etchings are on loan from the UBS Art Collection. As Bridgeman Images has been appointed by the Lucian Freud Archive (LFA) to administer and license the copyright and reproduction rights in Lucian Freud's artwork, UBS licensed images to be used for a range of exhibition materials.

Lucian Freud (1922-2011) was one of the most important portraitists of the 20th century. Always referred to as "the most beloved painter of the flesh," the term refers to his often relentless studies of naked bodies and bare skin.
