Francis Bacon

Ort: Centro Julio Gonzalez - Galería 1
The aim of the present exhibition is to look at Bacon anew by focusing solely on a single theme that haunted the artist for over twenty years: the “Pope” pictures. By bringing together the whole series of paintings and restoring them to the context in which they were made, we hope to make more apparent the range of ambition, risk, intuition, unconscious impulse and despair that drove the relatively young and unknown Francis Bacon to make this unprecedented assault on one of the great icons of Western art and civilization.
