Bacon and Freud: Graphic Works




An exhibition of prints by Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud. The selected works provide an overview of the artists’ graphic output and demonstrate the different approaches each took to printmaking. Friends who rose to prominence in London in the 1950s, Bacon and Freud are widely regarded as the leading figurative artists of the 20th century.

Francis Bacon (1909 – 1992) based his prints on a selection of 35 of his paintings dating from 1955 – 1991. 

Lucian Freud (1922 – 2011) created his first etching in Paris in 1946, but the height of his graphic output was in the 1990s. The marks and techniques he employed during the etching process were a natural progression from his work as a draughtsman.
