Jane McAdam Freud Biography

Jane McAdam Freud, daughter of Lucian Freud, is a sculptor and multi-disciplinary artist with a career extending over twenty years.
Graduating with a Bachelors degree from Central St Martins College, London in 1981, she went on to be awarded the British Art Medal Award Scholarship in Rome: an accolade she held for three years.
She subsequently completed her Masters degree at the Royal College of Art in 1995. Most often recognised for her wire sculptures, Freud’s work features in the permanent collections of a number of museums and galleries around the world, including the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), National Gallery Archives (London), and The Brooklyn Museum, in New York. The British Museum made their first acquisition in 1979 while she was still a student at Central St Martins.

McAdam Freud is currently an associate lecturer at Central St. Martins and regularly teaches at a number of other institutions in London. Her study of Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis has resulted in a number of collaborations with psychoanalytic societies and centers in New York and Beverly Hills, an interest, which continues to inform her practice. Her work also frequently finds inspiration from the rich source of her own family background, referencing both the remarkable collection of antiquities and sculptural objects collected by her grandfather and the cultural legacy of Freudian psychoanalysis which has had a profound and lasting effect on contemporary psyche.
