At the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao.

Fervent Francophile, Francis Bacon was an avid consumer of classical French literature and passionate about the art of Picasso and Van Gogh settled in France, and painters who preceded them like Degas, Gauguin and Matisse. The exhibition of nearly 80 paintings brings together some of the most significant paintings and lesser-known of the British artist, with regard to the work of great French and Spanish masters who had great influence on his career. Transgressor in his life and in his work, Bacon achieved several hitherto difficult to break boundaries and set the human face in a mirror where he can contemplate in all its crudity and violence.
