Lucian Freud and his artistic circle

I'm sorry to hear of the death of Lucian Freud, an artist held in very high esteem (I'm not totally familiar with his work myself) not least by the establishment: he held the OM. Freud seems to have been one of the last links to a brutally honest, post-war bohemia of artists. His passing puts me in mind of John Maybury's remarkable biopic of Freud's sometime friend and colleague Francis Bacon, Love Is The Devil (1998)
