Tuesday Evenings at the Modern
Oct 09, 2012

Martin Gayford, the British critic, writer, and curator, is “the man in a blue scarf.” As a prominent sitter for Freud and the subject of the painting Man in a Blue Scarf, 2004, Gayford wrote of his experience in the 2010 book Man with a Blue Scarf: On Sitting for a Portrait by Lucian Freud. For Tuesday Evenings at the Modern, Gayford shares what he observed throughout his extended sittings and the relationship that he inevitably developed with the artist.

Mr. Gayford will sign books beginning at 6 pm.
