10 March - 19 July 2010. Aged 88, London-based painter Lucian Freud is arguably one of the world's most important living artists. This exhibition, his first in France for 22 years, pays tribute to the artist and serves as a retrospective of a glittering career. Comprising 50 large canvasses, as well as a collection of photographs, Freud's enormous London studio acts as the show's central theme, examining not just the artist's work space but also the bond between sitter and painter. Included in the exhibition are Freud's recent (but already famous) portraits of Leigh Bowery and Big Sue.
