'among the greatest ever books by an artist' - The Guardian

The poetic and painfully honest memoir of the artist Celia Paul

In Self-Portrait, Celia Paul reveals a life truly lived through art.

She moves effortlessly through time, in words and images, from her arrival at the Slade School of Fine Art at sixteen, through a profound and intense affair with the older and better-known artist Lucian Freud, to the practices of her present-day studio. This intimate memoir is, at its heart, about a young woman navigating the path to artistic freedom, with all the sacrifices and complications that entails.
