18 May – 18 September 2016
This summer experience the largest Francis Bacon exhibition ever staged in the north of England at Tate Liverpool. Displaying more than 30 paintings, alongside a group of rarely seen drawings and documents; learn more about one of Britain’s modern masters.
Francis Bacon often painted a ghost-like frame or structure around the subjects of his paintings. This powerful device skilfully draws our attention to the figures within his work, intensifying their emotional state to us the viewer. Francis Bacon: Invisible Rooms looks at some of the artist’s most iconic and powerful paintings with a special focus on this technique and will be the first exhibition to explore this reoccurring motif in his work.
Learn something new about a great British painter, not to be missed.
Francis Bacon: Invisible Rooms is organized by Tate Liverpool and Staatsgalerie Stuttgart. Francis Bacon: Invisible Rooms will tour to Staatsgalerie Stuttgart (7 October 2016 – 8 January 2017).
And as if the extensive collection of Bacon’s work was not enough, the ticket includes entry to Tate Liverpool’s Maria Lassnig exhibition.
