Lucian Freud Is Dead

 As anyone who has read my ongoing analysis of Canada's Group of 7 painters must realize, I don't know much about art.  But I do know my way around uncompromising assholes.  Painter Lucian Freud was one, and his death today lessens the species in ways that will not be appreciated for years and decades.

And, on yeah, its the 60th anniversary of LW's death.  Who, you ask? 
Fie upon you all!  The West is doomed.


Just the facts, please said...

I believe that's a Francis Bacon, not a Lucien Freud, illustrating your post. Like many others, Freud was a jerk, but a brilliant figurative painter. Bacon, not so much.

Yup. Meant to do that. But replaced it with a real LF painting.
