Lucian Freud as a Child
Temporary display

A new small-scale temporary display in the Dining Room at the Freud Museum offers a rare opportunity to see letters and drawings by Lucian Freud as a child.

Lucian Freud left Berlin for London with his parents and two brothers in 1933, settling in St John’s Wood. Lucian was sent to boarding school at Dartington Hall in Devon and his letters to his mother and father from this time give an insight into the artist as a young boy adapting to life in a new country. He describes playing cricket in the rain, building model railways and he even urges his architect father to start building skyscrapers, all accompanied by his comical childhood drawings.
