What a remarkable photo (actually, remarkable series) of Lucien Freud, grandson of Sigmund Freud.
This photo reminds me of the fact that when you’re lucky enough to be making a living doing what you love, you never really retire. Look at the wall behind him next to his canvas. Awesome.
This photo was taken in 2005. Lucien died in July of 2011.
*I also love this photo of him shaving with a (clean) paintbrush. Seems reasonable to me. Seriously, it does.
