Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Inspiration. Friendship. Competition. Betrayal.

Much has been written about the contentious relationship between two of Britain’s greatest 20th-century painters Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud. Both created portraits raw with emotion, but while Freud’s images took months to create and are meticulous in detail and of moderate hues, Bacon’s works are dynamic and bold-coloured.

What did they learn from each other while friends, and what was the impact of their break? Art historian Dr. Marie-Anne Mancio explores the turbulent rivalry and dazzling art of these contrasting geniuses.

In time for the upcoming Tate Britain show All Too Human: Bacon, Freud and a century of painting life.

Evening event with a glass of wine.
