The work of one of the world’s most famous post-war artists, Lucien Freud, arrives in Brazil for the first time with an extensive show of prints, paintings and photographs at MASP. The Berlin-born, British artist and grandson of psychiatrist Sigmund Freud, is best known for his thick, painterly style and the psychological penetration of his sitters that draws attention to the relationship between the artist and the model.

This exhibition, 'Corpos e Rostos' (bodies and faces), runs until mid-October and focuses not only on the artist’s painting but primarily on his print-making. It explores two particular periods of his career, the first as a young man in the 1940s, experimenting with engraving and the second – 40 years later – when Freud created a startling series of etched nudes and portraits. The show also includes six of his paintings and 28 photos of Freud taken by his assistant David Dawson.
