The Modern Art Museum will present the U.S. premiere of the Smithsonian Channel documentary Freud’s Naked Truths. For most of his career Lucian Freud was overlooked —a man out of step with his time. However, his extraordinary portraits— of children, lovers, gangsters, supermodels, even the Queen of England — pushed boundaries of the genre. This intimate film explores his life story and remarkable body of work with those who knew him best – his models, children, lovers, and friends. The film will premiere on Smithsonian Channel in July.
