Kingcups - Souvenir of Glen Artney
Oil painting by Lucian Freud (1922- )

Related to the Garman-Ryan collection through his marriage to Epstein’s daughter Kitty, Freud studied under Cedric Morris. Renowned for his portraits and figure studies, Freud also painted many detailed nature studies. This example depicts wild marigolds in uncultivated land. Exemplary of his fastidious observations, the colour of the hills and the presence of seed pods reveal the season to be late summer.
