Lucian Freud,     Lucian Freud is the grandson of Sigmund Freud. He began drawing profusely around the age of 10. Early paintings of Lucien Freud were influenced by surrealism, featuring people in strange compositions. For the rest of his career, he would focus on portraits, most of them nudes. Style would also develop from thin, flat paint to thick, less blended strokes.
