Critical Review

Just as Lucian Freud often returned to his close friends and family members to draw, paint, and etch, he also sought inspiration from the natural environment that surrounded him. Landscape is a small study of a cross-section of the floor of Freud's garden, and Freud has painstakingly rendered every blade of grass, twig, and unfurling petal he observed. This study predates his much larger landscape etching, Garden In Winter, which focuses on the wider landscape emerging from this zoomed-in study.

Just like his Naked Portraits and Portrait Heads, no detail is spared from Freud's Plants. Each and every natural element appears like a portrait of sorts in Landscape, revealing not only the details of Freud's garden but his close attachment to it. Freud himself was allegedly a keen gardener, and his unwavering attention to detail in Landscape is testament to his green fingers and masterful handling of the etching needle.
