We connect to Art


We went to the Lucien Freud show at the main museum in San Marco Square. Lucian Freud’s grotesque nudes, the realism of the faces, the bodies, the pointillist perfection of the clothes worn in some of his paintings -each contributed to the four of us being temporarily mesmerized.

“I can’t look at that,” Jack said as we came around a corner and saw the enormous fat nude woman entitled Benefit Supervisor.

Sophie came home inspired, and immediately took an oil painting class at the Frye Art Museum. We were stunned by her result. The painting to left above is a Lucien Freud self portrait. The one to the right is a Sophie Forman original.
