‘The precision and intimacy of Celia Paul’s writing is as impressive as the empathy and power of her painting. I feel that this book will be important to many readers, ’ Frank Auerbach

Celia Paul is one of the most important painters working in Britain today, and her memoir is a vivid and precise distillation of her art, ranging from her student days at the Slade and her relationship with Lucien Freud to the struggles that she faced and the determination that she needed in order to make her way as an artist.

In conversation with Frances Spalding, art historian, critic, biographer and Festival Patron.

 

Followed by a small display of works on paper by Lucian Freud and Celia Paul in the Graham Robertson Study Room.

 

Booking essential. Visit the Cambridge Literary Festival website
