Based on Freud's travels and his 56 letters and 189 postcards of travel correspondence Sharon Kivland’s beautifully written and printed trilogy, Freud on Holiday, published by information as material, re-imagined these trips through reconstruction. For her extensive art pieces on Freud, Kivland works closely with the Freud Museum in London. Four appendices zoom in on Freud’s memories about his holidays. Below follows an excerpt from Appendix 1: Freud's Weather.
