British painter Lucian Freud poses on July 4, 2010 during a visit to the Fesch museum in Ajaccio on the the French Mediterranean island of Corsica.
Born in Berlin, he and his Jewish family fled Nazi Germany in 1933 and moved to London. After a stint in the army, he went to art school. There, the grandson of Sigmund Freud began his own lifelong study of people - using not psychoanalysis, but paint.
Over six decades his output also included a number of self-portraits.
