The exhibition brings together one of the UK’s most important private collections of modern British art. It was created over a number of decades with work often being purchased before the artists were famous. In addition to Francis Bacon, there is work from other British artists of the 20th century, including Lucian Freud, Barbara Hepworth and David Hockney.

CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ FOCUS: TURNING FIGURE, 1962

Francis Bacon, Turning Figure 1962. Oil on canvas. © The Estate of Francis Bacon / DACS London 2017. All rights reserved. Catalogue Raisonné Number 62-11.

The next portrait to feature in our ‘Catalogue Raisonné Focus’ series is Turning Figure, 1962, which is presently on show at the Museé Fabre as part of their ‘Francis Bacon / Bruce Nauman. Face to Face’ exhibition.

The figure in this painting is more androgynous than those that feature in two similar standing female nudes, Nude, 1961, and Figure Turning, 1692. The anatomy in it doesn’t have any significant attributes that identify its gender, and only the long hair distinguishes it as female.

Excerpts: Martin Harrison, FSA. 62-11 Turning Figure, 1962, Catalogue Raisonné Volume III, page 700-701.
