  1. The Tate has never been on my list of places to visit when in London, but this looks like an interesting exhibit. Not as abstract as some modern art often is. I particularly like the painting with the dog.

    1. I like the dogs in his paintings a lot. They are dogs he interacted with and usually painted with their owners. In the first picture is a nude with another dog and that one had a lot of details too and the dog-man relation is beautiful to watch.
      I’m not into modern art either, but with my visit to Freud Museum, I couldn’t miss a special exhibition of his grandson.

  2. I must admit that visiting galleries and exhibitions have been among the things I have most missed, since the onset of Covid. However, the whole period has demanded a rethink about our lives gong forward, so city visits are not really going to feature too much on our agenda in the future.

    The detail in the picture you featured in close-up, is amazing and I do like much of his portrait work, however the image of The Queen he decided to display a few years ago, was absolutely terrible!

    It’s a bit like having a favourite singer or author I guess, you are never going to like all the work they produce! 🙂

    1. I visited the exhibition because I went to Freud Museum the previous week. I am not as keen on modern art, although I liked some of his pieces very much. I missed museums very much, so I am delighted to be able to visit, especially as I’m in London so I have so many things to see.
