Lot Essay

‘I find it very, very difficult to imagine being in a room by myself and looking at a wall and thinking, what art shall I do next? Because I want it to be something that stands up for itself and that works by its own rules and that even if you saw it upside-down or half-way across the world, it would still have a vitality – which is finally, I suppose, a sort of subtext, or inner vitality.’
– Frank Auerbach
