The word “disturbing” never comes to mind. Girl in a Blanket is a portrait of Henrietta Moraes, Freud’s lover (Francis Bacon also painted Henrietta in the same period.) You can’t imagine her destroying the painting because she didn’t like how her chin looked – like happened last August in London with another one of his models.
