Lucian Freud’s artwork is both intimate and raw. The viewer is confronted with corpulent figures, nudity, and glimpses into the psyches of those he portrayed. The painter, who died in 2011, was the grandchild of psychiatrist Sigmund Freud.The UBS Art Collection contains the majority of etchings from Freud’s last creative phase, as well as one watercolor and two paintings-a total of fifty-four works of the highest quality that are simultaneously delicate and bold. The fact that the exhibition is held in Berlin’s Martin-Gropius-Bau is of particular significance, as the city was Freud’s birthplace, from which he was forced to flee with his parents in 1933. With the help of the UBS Art Collection, it is as if the artist now returns home. Exhibition: 22.7.-22.10.2017, Martin-Gropius-Bau
