9 Feb - 27 May. The National Portrait Gallery presents a collection of portraits by the recently-deceased Lucian Freud (1922-2011) who assisted the gallery in producing this major exhibition.

The show spans over 70 years and comprises 130 of Freud's works, on loan from museums and private collections around the world, some of which have never been displayed publicly.

The paintings are arranged according to particularly important periods in the artist's career, and feature groups of regular sitters including Freud's lovers, friends and family, whom he referred to as the "people in my life".

Considered by many as the most influential artist of his generation, Freud's work is noted for its thickly-painted style as well as its psychological penetration.
