Lucian Freud: Portraits
Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
By the last half of the 20th century, portraiture was supposed to be a dying art form. Good thing the great British artist Lucian Freud, who died last year at age 88, never got the news. His profound inspection of the human face and form, from his finely delineated early work to the magma flows of pigment that marked his mature style, was never less than thrilling. (7/1--10/28)
