Interior in Paddington by Lucien Freud

Interior in Paddington by Lucien Freud

Freud’s “Interior in Paddington” in 1951 won one of the prizes at the British Exhibition Festival, and since that time, Lucien Freud has earned a reputation as one of the best contemporary artists in the field of figurative painting. A young man standing in the lobby of a state institution smokes.

The face is simple, still retaining the youth disproportion; the sight of large gray eyes is directed inward, serious. He is dressed in a white shirt, a knitted cardigan and a gray cloak. Judging by the expression on his face, a man prepares for a difficult conversation. Having clasped his right hand into a fist, he mentally again and again repeats to himself what he has to prove in the office of an official. Episode from the life of an ordinary person, what a lot – our contemporary.
