Lecture and gallery visit - 2nd visit of the new 2016/17 season
LUCIEN FREUD AND FRANCIS BACON: EXPRESSION IN ART
Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud are considered two of the most important artists who worked in Great Britain during the second half the 20th century. Recently, the works of either set world records at auction as some of the most expensive works of art ever sold. Interestingly, one could never mistake Lucian Freud's work for that of Francis Bacon (or vise-versa). However, these two artists knew one another, admired one another and even painted one another several times. The lecture introduces the lives and works of either artist and closes by demonstrating the relationship between them by examining the works where either artists painted his fellow artist.
