|Artists who broke the rules|
|From age forty to eighty-five.|
|The Head of E.O.W., 1951,|
Frank Auerbach. The patch
on her forehead is where the
artist erased a hole in the paper.
|Paint so thick his panels were often too heavy to hang |
on gallery walls. Here ugly seems more then "to the bone."
|In painting his wife, Auerbach was no more kind |
than he had been in painting his mistress.
|Mornington Crescent - Summer Morning, Frank Auerbach. The artist|
also rendered a number of urban landscapes chronicling the bombing
and rebuilding of London in the years after the war (bottom).
|Auerbach's studio--not the kind of place you'd visit in a suit and tie.|
|Auerbach doesn't take commissions. He paints only friends and|
relatives. (Whew, that's a relief!)
|Liberating: Mornington Crescent, 1965,|
