Francis Bacon was an artist who was certainly not famous for painting pretty, feel good images – but his controversial artwork is thought provoking and has been embraced by fans worldwide.
For the first time, over 50 paintings will be brought to Australia as part of the Sydney International Art Series in a show titled “Francis Bacon, Five Decades”.
You can watch the following video to learn more about Francis Bacon and the exhibition:
The artwork will be accompanied by archived items and inspiration taken from his studio which will give visitors a rare look into how this creative mind worked.
Many of the pieces are 8ft x 5ft and this is set to be a once in a life time exhibition.
Francis Bacon, Five Decades will be at the NSW Art Gallery from 17th November 2012 until 24th February 2013.
