German, 1931. Frank Auerbach is a famous German-British 20th-century painter well-known for his cityscapes, landscapes, and expressionist portraits. Auerbach was born in 1931 in Berlin, Germany. His father, Max Auerbach, was a patent lawyer, and his mother, Charlotte Nora Borchardt, an artist. His parents sent him to England during his childhood in 1939, where he settled for the rest of his life. The artist attended the Bunce Court School in Britain. During his early year, Frank Auerbach wanted to pursue a career in acting, however, he was drawn more to painting. The artist started studying at St Martin's School of Art in 1948. Later, he also attended the Royal College of Art. Auerbach developed his signature style involving a bold color palette and thick and distinct painting. His works are known for their rough impasto technique. The painter received criticism for his thick paint application process. However, he received support from David Sylvester, an art critic who defined his work as remarkable as Francis Bacon. Frank Auerbach hosted his first individual show in 1956 at the Beaux-Arts Gallery. In 1954, the painter bought a studio in Camden Town with his close friend and fellow artist Leon Kossoff. In 1986, the painter also represented Britain at the Venice Biennale. Here he received a joint Gold Lion award with Sigmar Polke.
