Francis Bacon: Five Decades
SYDNEY • Art Gallery of New South Wales • 17 November 2012 - 24 February 2013
Surveying Francis Baconís life and work, this is the first major exhibition in Australia of rare works by the master of post-war British art.
With over 50 paintings as well as archival material from his studio, films and photographs, the loan exhibition covers every decade of his career, from the pensive and shocking works of the 1940s to the exuberantly coloured and visceral large paintings of the 1970s and 80s.
