The Painting Secrets of Freud and Bacon

By Alice White

Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon are two giants of British Figure Painting.

Alice explores the squalor and subtitles of both artists. Through their paintings the spirit of Soho nightlife in the sixties is evoked. She takes us behind the scenes of their studios and explores how their images illustrate a deep and delicate human psyche. This lecture illustrates passion and personality through the” fleshy folds of the human form.”
