"David Dawson spent 20 years as one of Freud's most consistent models, and features in his final (unfinished) portrait, sitting alongside his whippet in one of 100 paintings spanning 70 years.
"I was so excited," says Dawson, recalling his first meeting with Freud, in the artist's Holland park studio in 1989.
He'd been working for Freud’s dealer, James Kirkman, after graduating from the Painting school of the Royal College of Arts in 1989, and describes Freud as "quite small, slim, very light and quick on his feet with fantastically bright eyes".
His studio, he says, was "the most remarkable room I had ever stepped into", but Freud's "good manners and quick wit" dissolved any sense of intimidation."
