Edition unknown, presumed very small. Cream wove paper. Wide margins. Fine impression. Very good to fine condition; affixed to conservation support sheet.

Issued to promote the “Lucian Freud: recent work” exhibition at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, England. The show consisted of works by Freud created between 1945 and 1993. Apparently there were very small quantities of this lithograph printed for distribution at the opening night reception and they went quickly. Our example not to be confused with the original etching.
