Frank Auerbach: Speaking and Painting
This title provides an intimate portrait of one of Britain's best-loved painters and an artist of international renown. Born in Berlin in 1931, Auerbach was sent to England via Kindertransport in 1939 to escape the Nazi regime and has lived and worked in London ever since. Auerbach is now in his eighties and is still producing the powerful figurative paintings that have defined his work for over fifty years. This book, drawn from conversations between Auerbach and author Catherine Lampert, provides an in-depth look at the artist's long career.
