Lucian Freud Designs Wine label

bordeaux-pauillac-chateau-mouton-rothschild-2001
Lucian Freud, has joined the ranks of a select group of artists: those who have designed labels for Château Mouton Rothschild wine.

The commission, for Mouton’s 2006 vintage, was announced yesterday at the opening of an exhibition of previous labels at the Wolfsonian-Florida International University, on view through March 8. Château Mouton Rothschild has featured an original artwork every year since 1945; previous artists include Miro, Chagall, Braque, Picasso, Dali, Warhol, Bacon, Haring, and Balthus.
Freud’s label features a simple line drawing of a potted palm and a zebra’s head.
The artists receive no payment for their contribution other than cases of the Bordeaux-region wine.
