  • BOY’S HEAD BY LUCIAN FREUD AT SOTHEBY’S IN OCTOBER

    Boy's Head by Lucien Freud. It made £3,177,250.

    Boy’s Head dating from 1952 by Lucian Freud (1922-2011) will headline Sotheby’s Contempoary Art evening auction in London on October 13.  The work, from a seminal early period of the artist’s oeuvre, depicts Charlie Lumley, one of Freud’s most immediately recognisable subjects.

    An oil on canvas, it transmits a remarkable psychological intensity.  From a private collection it is estimated to make £3-4 million.

    UPDATE:  It made £3,177,250.
