Francis Bacon at The Met

The first major exhibition in New York in twenty years, Francis Bacon: A Centenary Retrospective features some 130 works--sixty-five paintings and as many archival items from public and private collections that span the entirety of the artist’s full and celebrated career. Further more, the presentation affords the most comprehensive examination to date of Bacon’s sources and working processes, offering a reevaluation of the artist’s work in light of a range of new interpretations and archival materials that have emerged since his death in 1992. To learn more about Bacon, consider attending the May 22 lecture, Francis Bacon: The Sacred and the Profane, give by Michael Peppiatt, writer, art historian, and friend of Francis Bacon.
