Lucian Freud in London

by stephie386

Hi!

I am an art student about to make my first trip to Europe and must see both Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud! I would prefer to see later Freud's but will take what I can get! Where's the best place to go?

Thank you!!

Try the Tate Britain for Bacon. As search of their website shows that they are exhibiting several of his pieces (and several others are currently on loan). Tates Britain and Modern are musts for art lovers anyway so I'm sure you'd find yourself at both of them anyway!

Here's the website: http://www.tate.org.uk/britain/

Freud is a little tougher - the Tate shows that they own many pieces but doesn't indicate that any are on display. There is one self portrait at the National Portrait Gallery.
Here's a list of other museums that have his works - several of them in London:

Just so you don't waste your time; the National Gallery doesn't have either.
Sorry, I can't remember what the above poster said so sorry if I'm repeating but the National Portrait gallery has two Freud's on show; 1963 self portrait in room 32 and in the same room Nathaniel Charles Jacob Rothschild, 4th Baron Rothschild ('Man in a Chair') from 1989.
They don't have any Bacon's. I know the Tate Britain has a fair few, they also have 25 Freud's but their website doesn't say where they are on show (there are four different Tate galleries in the UK)

Travel Tips for London

Old and new

by ZanieOR

The contrast between the old and historical, and the new and modern. This was evident everywhere, at the most popular tourist attractions, in London architecture and most of all walking down any city street in London. One of the things I miss is the feeling of getting up in the morning and knowing I have a whole day in front of me in which to explore more facets of London.

A stroll on the South Bank

by bzh

I love having a walk on the South bank of the Thames when I can. It is less crowded than the centre, has quite a few nice shops and cafes and provides a fantastic unobstructed view onto the river the the North bank and the traditional London skyline.

The English language in different flavours!

by Jenniflower

American English differs from English English in several key points. This can cause much amusement sometimes! haha

lift-elevator
boot-trunk of car
telly-TV
brolly-umbrella
tube-subway
lorry-truck
pavement-sidewalk
vest-undershirt
waistcoat-vest
ring-call
muffler-scarf
lounge-livingroom
rubbish-trash
mad-insane
let-rent

etc. etc.! That being said, you often will find that the person behind the counter/waitron does not have English as a first language, and this can be quite frustrating at times. There are many foreigners who live and work in London, especially students, and they are learning English. Might sound weird to not deal with English people when shopping/eating out in London, but is so.

The photo is of Bree, an Australian waitress we chatted with at Hampton's Wine Bar. She had only been in London for 2 weeks wen we met her!

Downing Street

by kris-t

Downing Street is the world-famous street in central London which contains the buildings that have been, for over two hundred years, the official residences of two of the most senior British cabinet ministers, the First Lord of the Treasury (an office held by the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom) and the Second Lord of the Treasury, an office held by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. The most famous address in Downing Street is 10 Downing Street, the official residence of the First Lord of the Treasury--and thus, in modern times, the residence of the Prime Minister, since the two roles have been filled by the same person. Downing Street is located off Whitehall in central London, a couple of minutes' walk from the Houses of Parliament and on the edge of the grounds of Buckingham Palace. The street was built by and named after Sir George Downing (1632-1684). Downing was a soldier and diplomat who served under Oliver Cromwell and Charles II. In the service of the King he was rewarded with the plot of land adjoining St James's Park upon which Downing Street now stands. The Prime Minister, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and the Chief Whip all officially live in houses on one side of the street.

Great Charity Workers

by scottishvisitor

The tradition of Pearly Kings & Queens goes back to 1875 when Henry Croft left the orphanage, where he was born & bred, at the age of 13 to make his own way in life. Henry got a job sweeping the market streets where he got to know & admire the market traders who looked out for each other & helped those in need. He started to collect fallen pearly buttons as he swept the streets & sewed them on to his cap & suit. He collected money for charity & the orphanage. The tradition continues today with 40 active families still collecting for various charities. There is a statue of Henry in St. Martins in the Field the church where the Kings & Queens still go to worship.
