The UBS Art Collection contains the majority of etchings from Freud’s last phase, as well as one watercolor and two paintings—a total of 54 works of the highest quality. At once delicate and bold in conception, Freud’s etchings challenge viewers with their candor. The fact that the exhibition is held in Berlin’s Martin-Gropius-Bau is of particular significance, as the city was Freud’s birthplace, from which he was forced to flee with his parents in 1933. With the help of the UBS Art Collection, the artist now returns home.
