Sense of calm


Lucian Freud, Eli, 2002, etching, 2ft 7in x 3ft 2in (77.5 x 95.5cm).

Dawson, who worked with Freud regularly during the final 20 years of his life says: “There was a palpable sense of calm, to take in the paintings and sculpture Lucian lived with, that inspired him, lifted his spirits and help him in his own work.

“He always said art comes out of great art.”

The show runs from October 6-December 16. Dawson’s limited edition photographs start at £2000 and Freud’s etchings range from £20,000-135,000.
