"Surveying of the Career of Francis Bacon"
2001-07-21 until 2001-09-23
Sheffield Galleries and Museum Trust, Millenium Galleries
Sheffield, , 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 misrepresented.

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.
