An unforgettable presentation focusing on the contemporary giants of the artworld, Freud and Hockney

Possibly the greatest figure painter of the second half of the 20th century, Lucian Freud also led an extraordinary life, from his family's escape from the Hitler regime in the 1930s, to his colourful and combative life in London.  This presentation will look at his unforgettable paintings, as well as the work of David Hockney, London's most famous contemporary artist.
