Five Francis Bacon masterpieces join the Ferens Art Gallery's permanent collection redisplay. This includes one of Bacon's most revered and highly recognised masterpieces, Head VI (1949), from the Arts Council Collection.

A master of modern British art, Bacon's series was inspired by Diego Velazquez's 17th-century Portrait of Pope Innocent X.
