'It will be read as long as Freud's work is admired' - Sunday Times
'A journal, an act of confession, a character study of Freud, a piecemeal survey of art history and an investigation into the practicalities of portraiture ... a book that's not just read but relished' - The Spectator
'If it is Freud who dominates the book, it is Gayford's achievement to bring him out and to do so with wit and humour as well as acute intelligence ... literally inimitable' - Guardian
'Freud is vividly surprising, potent and dynamic ... a portrait of an anarchic painter with views on everything from Leonardo's failings to Princess Margaret's voice' - Observer
'One of the best books ever written about the art of painting' - Grey Gowrie, Financial Times
