lucian freud self-portrait set to sell for up to £4m at feb auction

lucian freud self portrait with a black eye
A new painting by Lucien Freud has been rediscovered after sitting in a private collection for over 30 years. Self-Portrait With A Black Eye shows Freud with a swollen eye from a fight where he got punched in the face by a cab driver. Sotheby's says this is Freud's "most important self-depiction ever to appear at auction".
