Last night, Theatre 3 premiered a play about Sigmund Freud. Today we recommend the art exhibit of portraits by his grandson Lucien Freud running at The Modern in Fort Worth.

Lucian Freud is widely considered the greatest portrait painter of the twentieth century. His visceral renderings of people from all walks of life have a painterly and psychological drama that is unparalleled in contemporary art. For much of a century — from the late 1940s until his recent death in July 2011—Freud made the living human presence his subject.

DEETS: The Modern, 3200 Darnell St., Fort Worth. 10 a.m.–5 p.m. $10.
