Francis Bacon: In the Frame

Opening at the Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart on 7 October, Francis Bacon: Invisible Rooms will examine the use of architectural structures and spaces in Bacon's work – long recognised, but rarely researched in such detail. This collection of over thirty works will look at Bacon's fascination with the relationship of the human body to the space it inhabits, and his exploration of form and movement within a given structure. Many iconic works from the artist's career will be shown, with a renewed focus on his compositional tools, and the recurring symbolism and themes that Bacon addressed through his practice.
