Catalogue Note

‘What I’m not hoping to paint is another picture because there are enough pictures in the world. I’m hoping to make a new thing for the world that remains in the mind like a new species of living things.’ (Frank Auerbach, quoted in Catherine Lampert, ‘ A Conversation with Frank Auerbach,’ Frank Auerbach, exh. cat., Hayward Gallery, London, 1978, p.10)
