Lucian Freud, Sigmund's Grandson: Cruel Lover, Terrible Father and Haunting Painter (NSFW)

Sigmund Freud may have mastered the dark corners of the psyche, but his grandson Lucian certainly called dibs on all the shadowy secrets embedded in human flesh. The German artist has become one of the most iconic painters of the 20th century, captivating the world with his grotesque yet gorgeous portrayals of the animal side of human existence.
