Francis Bacon: Invisible Rooms addresses some of Bacon’s most powerful works with a renewed focus on their spatial structure.

About

Considered one of Britain’s greatest modern painters, Francis Bacon often painted an architectural, ghost like framing device around his subjects that structure many of his iconic paintings. Francis Bacon: Invisible Rooms addresses some of Bacon’s most powerful works with a renewed focus on their spatial structure.

A technique introduced by the artist in the 1930s, Bacon used a barely visible cubic or elliptic cage around the figures depicted to create his dramatic compositions. The exhibition will feature approximately 35 large-scale paintings and works on paper surveying the variety of Bacon’s painterly compositions united by this common motif.
