"Surveying of the Career of Francis Bacon"
2001-07-21 until 2001-09-23
Sheffield Galleries and Museum Trust, Millenium Galleries
UK United Kingdom
This exhibition surveys the career of
Francis Bacon who is widely regarded as
one of the most important artists of the
post-war period. During his lifetime Bacon
was described as the greatest living
painter. Since his death in 1992 his work
has continued to exercise widespread
fascination, not least among many
younger artists drawn to the visceral
power of his imagery and its
undiminished capacity to provoke. Yet,
despite the attention which his work has
received and continues to attract, Bacon's
art is frequently misunderstood and
The exhibition features the Tate's collection of Bacon paintings
and drawings and is complemented by selected works from other
British collections. Tate has a long association with Bacon. They
have collected his work for over 45 years and presented major
retrospectives in 1962 and 1985.
