Discover the fascinating story behind Lucian Freud’s portrait of Guinness family heir Garech Browne, painted at his ancestral home Luggala. Freud was a frequent visitor to this magical retreat in Ireland, which also played host to a who’s who of artistic luminaries including The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Sir John Hurt and Dennis Hopper. An intense and evocative example of Freud’s small-scale work from the 1950s borne out of his intimate relationship with the sitter, ‘Head of a Boy’ is a highlight of our upcoming Contemporary Art Evening Auction (5 March, London).
