This is Lucian Freud's study named 'Reflection', created in 1956. Freud interests me because of his relevant fascination with understanding the physical and mental mindset of the people he painted; portrayed through how he creates similar compositions of the same people, posing in different positions. I think this is a really interesting aspect of his painting along with the thick brush marks he makes with oil paint, layering the paint to help build depth.

Reflection (Self-portrait), 1985 ~ Lucian Michael Freud, OM, CH was a German-born British painter. Known chiefly for his thickly impastoed portrait and figure paintings, he was widely considered the pre-eminent British artist of his time.
