I felt a degree of menace in the drawing of Peter Watson by Lucian Freud but the Victoria and Albert Museum describes the drawing’ ” Close examination shows that the grey tone of the paper comes from the use of grey fibres. The artist clearly enjoyed the texture of the laid paper setting off its vertical lines visible through the shading of the tie against the diagonally patterned fabric of the sitter’s jacket.”
