Lucian Freud in Vienna

The Kunsthistorisches Museum presents an exhibition of works from the 70-year career of British artist Lucian Freud (1922-2011).

The show was conceived in collaboration with the artist, prior to his death in July 2011, and comprises the works that Freud considered his most important, including portraits of his relatives and figures such as Queen Elizabeth II and fellow artist Francis Bacon, self-portraits, landscapes and still lifes.

There are numerous paintings on loan from major international galleries such as London's Tate Modern, New York's MoMA and Madrid's Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza. 

The Sigmund Freud Museum, dedicated to the artist's famed Viennese psychoanalyst grandfather, holds a parallel exhibition of photographs depicting Freud's art studio. The images, taken by David Dawson, reveal the circumstances under which the artist worked.

Tues-Sun 10.00-18.00. Thurs 10.00-21.00
