Lucian Freud was born in 1922 in Berlin and came to London with his family in 1933. By the time of his death in 2011 he was widely perceived as the pre-eminent British artist of his time.

Harriet Bridgeman, founder of the Bridgeman Art Library said:  “We are honoured to be selected to represent the Lucian Freud Archive and we look forward to helping to protect and promote the legacy of this great artist. When I started the Artists Collecting Society in 2006 to collect Artists' Resale Right Lucian Freud was one of the first artists to join and we are proud to have the opportunity to continue that association”.

Diana Rawstron, Trustee of the Lucian Freud Archive, said: "We are delighted that Bridgeman has agreed to manage this wonderful archive of work by the late Lucian Freud.  The Lucian Freud Archive holds high quality images of his work covering the artist's entire life."
