We invite Friends of the RA to join us for an exclusive preview of our exhibition ‘Lucian Freud: The Self-portraits’ before it opens to the public.

In a world first, we unite Lucian Freud’s self-portraits in one extraordinary exhibition. See more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turns his unflinching eye firmly on himself.

Don’t miss your chance to see it all first – three days ahead of the public opening – at your exclusive Friends Previews.

This event is open to Friends of the RA, RA250 Friends and RA250 Supporters and members of the Academicians’ Room only.

Lucian Freud: The Self-portraits will be held in our smaller, Jillian and Arthur M. Sackler Wing of Galleries and we expect demand to be high. To ensure the best possible experience, Friends are required to book a free, timed ticket for themselves and their family member for the Friends Previews, Extended Hours and full run of the exhibition.

Exhibition organised by the Royal Academy of Arts, London in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
