“Lucian Freud” Vintage Reversible Blanket
The power of a story is less often measured by its veracity and more often by the amount of recognition it causes within us. After seeing a picture of one of our great inspirations, painter Lucian Freud, with an exact copy of this heirloom wool blanket, we prefer to think of it as “his.” It probably wasn’t, but who wants to live in a world where the possibility is discounted completely?
Hand-loomed wool coverlet, likely mid 1800's American North East, in midnight blue and warm grey tones. The blanket shows some small marks of age and frayed edges.
