Frank Auerbach was born in Berlin Germany in 1931 and he died in 1942. He is a figurative painter, who focuses on portraits and city scenes in and around the area of London in which he lived.
I like this painting because the colors used are standing out from the dark background. I like the style of the artist; he does not put a lot of details when painting the body parts. For example, you barely see the hands or the ears. I like how he applies different shades of colors to paint the lights and the shadows on the body and on the clothes.
