LAST WEEK TO VISIT THE EXHIBITION OF FRANCIS BACON
Last days to visit the exhibition dedicated to Francis Bacon on display at Villa Fiorentino from last May 20th and which will close its doors on Sunday 21st October.
The works on display, donated by the artist to Barry Joule, a friend and associate of Francis Bacon, whom he defined as "not only a close friend, but also a teacher of art history and a wonderful teacher; an eclectic philosopher of life ", are made up of rectoverso drawings, a group of paintings from the Surrealist period (thirties) as well as several documents collected over time by the collector.
The collection of the works, donated by Bacon shortly before his last trip to Madrid, in 2004 was partly donated to the Tate Gallery in London, for which some of the works are in the catalog, and to the Picasso museum in Paris as well as to the National Gallery in Ottawa, Canada, a native of Joule.
The exhibit that is touring and has already been hosted in China (2013 and 2016) and in France (2015 and 2016), gives light to about 100 works and is held in the historic Villa which is one of the most interesting places in the city and which is an emblem of the creativity and soul of the Sorrento people.
