An incredible archive of letters and art work from artist Lucian Freud revealing his relationship with contemporary painter John Craxton early in their careers has emerged for sale for £350,000.<br />
<br />
The correspondence, illustrations and paintings were all sent to Craxton from the beginning of their friendship in December 1941.<br />

This archive not only demonstrates the incredible skill of the young Freud but it also reveals the inner thoughts of an intensely private man.
