Link to review on Publishers Weekly

“A first step toward a biographical understanding of a provocative, complex artist.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Biographer Hoban (Basquiat: A Quick Killing in Art) returns with a lively, concise biography (part of Amazon’s Icon series) of realist painter Lucian Freud (1922-2011), in which he emerges as a vigorous philanderer, gambler, brawler, and social climber.” —Publishers Weekly

“Art biographer Hoban (Alice Neel, 2010) presents a highly effective, strobe-like brief life of British painter Lucian Freud… A strikingly incisive portrait of an unforgettable rapscallion and provocative artist.” —ALA Booklist
