David Dawson appears at the exhibition of his photographs of Lucian Freud.


LONDON – Photographer David Dawson made an appearance at the preview of the exhibition An Artist’s Life: Photographs of Lucian Freud by Cecil Beaton and David Dawson at Sotheby’s in London. The exhibition showcases portraits of the artist by two of Freud’s most significant interpreters: Cecil Beaton and David Dawson. Many of Dawson’s unpublished portraits, taken during the time that he was Freud’s assistant, have never before been exhibited. The two collections of photographs show the painter at the beginning and end of his career.
