Man Ray #3

31 bis rue Campagne Premier (Paris), Man Ray’s home and studio. He first moved here in 1926. He lived here with Lee Miller for three years. (bron: American Girls Art Club In Paris)

2 bis rue Férou (Paris) was the offices of the revolutionary journal ‘L’Atelier’ during the Paris Commune of 1871. Later, in the 1950s, it was the home of artist and surrealist photographer Man Ray. The wide, metal framed window looks as if it belongs to an artist’s studio of that era. (bron: Beyond the Window Box)

Lucio Fontana #5

Looking at Lucian

Henry Goodman as Lucian Freud in Theatre Royal Bath's "Looking at Lucian".

"We are looking at the older Lucian Freud (1922-2011) in his London studio. Its sash windows are boarded up; daylight enters through glass panels overhead. Paint-smeared walls become extensions of the painter’s palette: Carla Goodman’s realistic set also symbolises a life contoured by painting. Freud is looking towards us, but not at us. He is looking at his sitter, who is an invisible presence located on an imaginary bed (or chaise longue) sited between stage and auditorium.

As he studies his subject, Freud talks, answering her questions about his past. We listen. Stories layer; shards of the life of the artist assemble into a picture – memories add shades of meaning to the present instant.

This new play by Alan Franks, who is also a novelist, songwriter and journalist, is beautifully written, elegantly constructed and tantalising. At one point, Franks has Freud describe the moment before a painting comes to life. The play is like that. It’s as though Franks is trying to use Freud’s stories the way Freud uses paint: by building up surface details to arrive at a deeper reality.
