Frank Auerbach (1937) was a German born figurative painter, who focuses on portraits and city scenes in and around the area of London. His paintings deal with the attempt to resolve the experience of being in the world in paint. In this the experience of the world is seen as essentially chaotic with the role of the artist being to impose an order upon that chaos and record that order in the painting. He came to England under the Kindertransport scheme at age of 7.
