Lucian Freud on Mouton Rothschild 2006 Add/Read Comments
Snooth Wine Search:
Every year since 1945, a great artist has created a work to grace the label of Mouton Rothschild. Past painters have included Chagall, Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon, Dali, César, Miró, Piacasso, Soulages, Balthus, Tàpies, Prince Charles and loads of others I've never heard of.
None is paid in money, only wine. But with each bottle worth around a grand I don't suppose the latest artist, Lucian Freud, is complaining. He is to receive ten cases of the stuff.
Freud, 86, was not 'persuaded' to paint the work but rather thought it was an amusing thing to do.
'The word persuade is not quite right, though, because you cannot persuade Lucian Freud to do anything, He either does something because he wants to or he does not do it. In this case, he thought it would be an amusing thing to do.'
