Here is a link to the trailer for the new movie The God of Small Things, Lucian Freud Captured on Film by the filmmaker Tim Meara.

  2. Seeing Freud’s retrospective in 1993 at the Met changed my life…I can’t wait to see the movie. Thanks for posting and I like the new format.

      Thanks Francis. That was an amazing show.I will try to keep an eye open for when this film might be playing in the US, probably go to the University and Museum film centers and the like – if so can be easy to overlook.
