This is the portrait of Leigh Bowery painted by Lucian Freud that hangs in the Treacy room at Liverpool Tate. I have the complete works of Freud held within a hard-boxed cover and held together rather substantially within a hradcover case.
I love Freud, I love his style, I love his subjects and I'd just love to have an original hanging right there, just above my fire place..any givers.
I have now made searches on who Bowery is and now am intrigued with the almost innocence of the portraits and his real life persona. Useless Man is a classic and downright filthy and deserves more recognition.
