Join us this summer to experience the largest Francis Bacon exhibition ever staged in the north of England. Displaying more than 30 paintings, alongside a group of rarely seen drawings and documents; learn more about one of Britain’s modern masters. Francis Bacon often painted a ghost-like frame or structure around the subjects of his paintings. This powerful device skilfully draws our attention to the figures within his work, intensifying their emotional state to us the viewer. ‘Francis Bacon: Invisible Rooms’ looks at some of the artist’s most iconic and powerful paintings with a special focus on this reoccurring motif in his paintings.
