Lucien Freud: The Man In Elaine Wynn's Paintings
Lucien Freud: The Man In Elaine Wynn's Paintings

Listen
AIR DATE: May 13, 2014

Elaine Wynn recently spent $142.4 million to buy "Three Studies of Lucian Freud" by Francis Bacon. Freud and Bacon were friends and posed for some of each other's most famous paintings. But Freud, the grandson of the Viennese psychoanalyst, was a driven and in his own words "selfish" person. Geordie Greig had breakfast regularly with Freud in his waning years and details his dedication to his art and his outrageous behavior.
