Francis bacon exhibition

France Bacon (1909-1992) is born in Dublin, Ireland and is global painter who played an active part based in London, the U.K. We are said to be descendant of branching off of philosopher of having exactly the same name.
It is his next word to express characteristic of work of bacon well. "Artist can take off block of bubble of feelings. In that way we can let people looking at picture return to straight (life) even by force."
Picture book which opens "bubble of feelings" which is always closed of person seeing. Picture which lets you feel true "life." World famous art museum including purado and metropolitan planned his exhibition all together simply because the words were true. However, in Japan, large-scale exhibition was not held since private exhibition in National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo and others for 30 years in 1983.
This exhibition is constructed by works from the 1940s to the dying direct front, 33 points.
Most are masterpieces, and two points are displayed four points, small size big size as for the broadcloth (with three pieces one set of work), too. It is the first among the world that four points of series of "the Sphinx" gathers, and "the Pope" not to be able to overlook to bacon enthusiast is exhibited plural number at. Besides, not simple retrospective show, it is theme exhibition that paid its attention to "body".
We cannot miss what bacon continues affecting for thing interested in physical expression.
By book exhibition, introducing image shows dance of person of choreography on behalf of east and west of state called Tatsumi Hijikata and William Forsythe.
