Now that's a phrase: the Ingres of Existentialism.

I guess that's 1954 for you:

Freud's Grandson and having a fling with a girl 50 years younger. Tough times for old artists.

... didn't realize that Lucian was related to Sigmund. Genius can be inherited, it seems.
(Not my favorite artist, but very talented, nonetheless. Caught an exhibit of his, years back.)

I think genius is just raw ideas. I have read several places that 'geniuses' are very modest. There's an interview with Lucian on youtube that is very inspiring, he is definitely modest, soft-spoken. Just look up Lucian Freud Interview there or on your favorite search engine.

Marvelous interviews. Thanks for the news about them.
