My friends Ls are in town and as is their habit they berated me for not taking advantage of the rich cultural opportunities on offer in London.
Had I already been to the Lucian Freud at the National Portrait Gallery, they wanted to know. And I am really grateful to the Ls for asking. I had meant to go when the exhibition opened and had totally forgotten about it.
It is a wonderful big exhibition full of Freud’s powerful portraits. Moreover, it is a rare opportunity to see so many Freuds, many of which are in private collections, in one place.
The exhibition is running until 27 May. If you have not yet been – Go. It is worth coming to London just for that.
