Born to a well-to-do middle-class Jewish family, and the grand son on Sigmund Freud, he escaped Nazi Germany in 1934 before being dropped into a succession of English public schools. Feaver traces a brilliant, difficult young man’s coming of age, creating art entirely on his own terms.
Freud was no hideaway artist; he was a passionate and often destructive lover with swathes of admirers both male and female. This volume closes in 1968 – a time when his professional reputation was still to come.
Not simply the story of an epic life, but also an account of a century told through one of its most important artists.
