About

Portrait from "Seven Portraits" Series. Image: 7 x 5.9 in. Sheet: 10 x 8 1/2 in. Edition of 50 One of Britain's preeminent postwar painters, Frank Auerbach, was born in Berlin, Germany in 1931. Arriving in England in 1939, he studied at the Royal College of Art and has remained in London ever since. His first exhibition was held at London's Beaux Arts Gallery in 1956; since then his works have become some of the most internationally collected of living artists. Auerbach's organic yet unified forms are deeply rooted in realism and are often renditions of people he knows well. His oils, drawings, and prints reveal an intense observation of the subject; he makes his mark with authority and finality, and arrives at the essence of his figures. Auerbach’s signature thick black lines and the furious mark-making he employs give his sitters a flickering quality of energy. For the artist, prints carry an authority that drawings do not, as well as a sense of “magic” that replaces emotion. While Auerbach has a deep reverence for the print medium, he has completed fewer than 40 editions throughout his career. Auerbach's work can be found in public collections worldwide including the Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museum, Aberdeen City, Scotland; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia; British Museum, London, England; Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland, Ohio; Frissiras Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens, Greece; Graves Art Gallery, Sheffield, England; Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Israel; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, New York; Museo de Arte Moderna da Bahia, Salvador, Brazil; Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City, Mexico; Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York; National Gallery of South Africa, Cape Town, South Africa; Royal College of Art, London, England; Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, Scotland; Tate Britain, London, England; and the Southampton Art Gallery, Sheffield, England.
