A Francis Bacon exhibition in Monaco, 2016

Portrait of Michel Leiris, 1976

The Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation is taking part in the organisation of a major exhibition dedicated to Francis Bacon, which will be held at the Grimaldi Forum from the 2nd of July to the 4th of September 2016. Entitled ‘Francis Bacon, Monaco and the French Culture’, the exhibition will present over 60 works by the English artist and will invite us to discover the direct and indirect influence that Monaco and the French culture had on his work.

The exhibition is curated by Martin Harrison, author of Francis Bacon: Catalogue Raisonné, and the exhibition catalogue will be co-published by the Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation and Albin Michel.
