About John Minton

In 1952, Lucian Freud painted a portrait of his fellow artist and friend, John Minton. Minton was known for teaching traditional anatomical drawing and figure painting. The portrait showcases both the raw technical brilliance and emotional acuity that are characteristic of Freud’s mature style.

It’s worth noting that five years after this portrait was painted, Minton tragically died. Despite struggling with depression, he left behind a lasting legacy as an artist and teacher.
