Critical Review

Though the identity of this unnamed sitter is unknown, we can observe in Head And Shoulders Of Girl an intimate bond between sitter and artist so typical of Freud's work. Renowned for his risqué love-life, the sitter might have been one of Freud's many lovers who sat for him in the studio.

Lucian Freud is renowned for his distinctive ability to realise tone, texture, and depth through the medium of etching, with only black ink to form his subjects. Head And Shoulders Of Girl demonstrates Freud's insightful handling of the medium, as he casts convincing shadows and tricks of the light with the etching needle alone.
