Bacon on Show

Francis Bacon, "Painting" 1946

The Irish artist with the reputation as a chronicler of the grotesque, Francis Bacon’s major centenary retrospective has opened at the Museum of Modern Art. After sojourns at the Tate Britain and the Prado Gallery in Madrid the 60 works have found their way to New York.

And “A Sky Filled with Shooting Stars” author, Robert Ayers says it’s “The best exhibition I have ever seen, anywhere, in my life”. You can read the why of his claim here and best of all you can see some decent sized pics of some of the artists seminal works.
