Freud`s breastfeeding portrait shocks Hall
London: Jerry Hall has lashed out at Lucian Freud, whose painting depicts a man breastfeeding her son by Sir Mick Jagger.
Freud had painted over her face and upper body in a portrait of her breastfeeding her youngest son, Gabriel, after she was unable to complete her sittings because of illness. On top of that, he replaced her features with those of his male assistant, David Dawson.
"It is now hanging in the Dallas Museum. I went there and saw it. It was very upsetting. Gabriel looks beautiful, and you can kind of see me underneath. I am still there,” The Telegraph quoted Hall as saying.
The Texan model, 54, who is selling a typically unflattering nude portrait of her that Freud painted while she was pregnant with Gabriel, Eight Months Gone, said she was even more furious with his response when she confronted him.
"Lucian said I could buy it and take off the top layer," she said.
