STUDY FOR A PORTRAIT OF VAN GOGH I

Study for a Portrait of Van Gogh I, is one of Francis Bacon’s most recognised works, and exemplifies his fascination with the artists of the past.

Francis Bacon and the Masters was a groundbreaking exhibition, held at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts from April-July 2015, that celebrated the work of Bacon, placing it alongside the work of artists that inspired him, including Cézanne, Matisse and Rembrandt. The exhibition brought together masterpieces from the State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg, with works by Bacon from the Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Collection and other lenders.
