Francis Bacon: Books and Painting

11 September 2019 - 20 January 2020

The later works of Francis Bacon, from 1971 to 1992, evoke the painter’s new literary influences. “Powerful voices read aloud the French and English texts of Eschyle, Nietzsche, Bataille, Leiris, Conrad and Eliot. These authors, who all played a role in inspiring Bacon’s works and designs, share a poetic universe, and form a sort of spiritual family of which the painter felt himself a part.”
