Despite working in different media, Francis Bacon and Henry Moore were exhibited together from the end of the Second World War into the 1960s when Marlborough Fine Art represented both. Carefully chosen to highlight the important influences and experiences which they shared, the works included here bring a fresh perspective to Bacon and Moore, exploring themes in their work such as ‘the Biomorphic/Picassoesque form’, ‘the human head’, and ‘the Classical figure’.
The exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, will be curated by Richard Calvocoressi CBE, Director of the Henry Moore Foundation, and Martin Harrison, Editor of the catalogue raisonné on Francis Bacon, in collaboration with the Estate of Francis Bacon.
