Was an artist yes, he died in 2011. Freud was born in Germany to half Jewish parents so they moved to the UK to escape Nazism and he became a naturalised citizen in 1939. Freud is reportedly said to have fathered over 40 children (however only 14, most from mistresses can be identified) from numerous mistresses and his 2 wives. He's the grandson of Sigmund Freud. He received the Order of Merit and Order of Companions of Honour.
