Francis Bacon: five decades

Be guided through the exhibition Francis Bacon: five decades by the director of the Art Gallery of NSW Michael Brand and curator Anthony Bond. Share the exhibition curator insights into the extraordinary paintings of one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists.

The app features audio commentary for each section of the exhibition set out over five decades of the artist's loves and life. There is also audio on some highlights of the show and archival material from the Francis Bacon studio.
