Francis Bacon’s oil painting Figure at a Washbasin, 1976, is currently on display at the Hangaram Museum, in the exhibition ‘Picasso to Francis Bacon’.
Along with Bacon’s painting, a series of Francis Bacon lithograths are also being showcased.
As the exhibition’s title alludes, great modern and contemporary masters including Picasso, Warhol, and Giacometti are represented too. All works displayed in the show are from Fundacion Museos Nacionales in Venezula.
The exhibition set to close on 1 March, for more information please visit the exhibition site.
The show will be curated by Martin Harrison FSA, author of the Francis Bacon Catalogue Raisonné, with the support of the Estate of Francis Bacon and the Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation.
The Grimaldi Forum will display over sixty works including major triptychs as well as famous and less well-known paintings thematically, exhibiting Bacon’s work’s relationship to France and the artist’s Monegasque period. Another feature of the show will be the displaying of major works of masters who inspired Francis Bacon: Giacometti, Léger, Lurçat and more – viewable as a cross-reference for visitors.
‘Francis Bacon, Monaco and French Culture’ will be the first major event to be supported by the Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation since it’s inauguration in Monaco on 28 October, the anniversary of Francis Bacon’s birth.
