'This definitive account of Auerbach's work and life includes excellent large-scale reproductions of 200 paintings and an illustrated catalogue of some 1,000 more, lively, pertinent interpretations from Feaver, the artist's long-term friend, critical supporter and model, and engaging interviews and photographs' - Financial Times 

The most comprehensive monograph to date on the Frank Auerbach (b. 1931), one of the preeminent artists of our age

Often compared to Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud in terms of the revolutionary and powerful nature of his work, Auerbach s depictions of people and the urban landscapes near his London studio make him one of the greatest painters alive today.

Spanning the length of his career from the 1950s to the present, this expanded edition includes 250 additional works bringing it up to date. In the back of the book there are small-scale chronological sequencing of full-colour reproductions, which depict nearly every painting made by the artist, from his student years up until this publication. At age 90, he looks back over his life and his work, rich with breakthroughs in painting and masterful individuality.
