Francis Bacon, Monaco and French Culture
Francis Bacon was immediately taken with French culture when he made his first visit to Paris towards the end of the 1920s. Exploring the influence of French culture on the British painter, as well as his Monegasque period, the Grimaldi Forum hosted Francis Bacon, Monaco and French Culture from 2 July–4 September 2016. The exhibition, curated by Martin Harrison, author of the Francis Bacon Catalogue Raisonné, included more than 60 works by the artist, among them “Watercolour,” 1929, his first recorded work, and also his last, the never-before-exhibited “Study of a Bull,” 1991.
