Michael Kimmelman on the life and death of the painter and provocateur, Lucian Freud.

Michael is a fabulous and gentle writer. I love how this article links to artworks that are referenced, as a way of helping the reader see. The links are not distracting, and by that I mean that they don't take you down rabbit holes and away from the article itself. Part of that has to do with what he is linking to, which are mostly images. Though, the main reason why his links are not distracting is because his writing is so good that you find it hard to tear yourself away from the story for too long.
