Francis Bacon at Tate Britain

11 September 2008 - 4 January 2009
Tate Britain's marvelous retrospective gives us a haunting vision of life stripped to the bone, a sense of macabre desolation.
"He is the single greatest artist that Britain has produced in the hundred years that have passed since his birth in 1909. There is no great secret to his success. Francis Bacon is quite simply the most extraordinary, powerful and compelling of painters."
From Times Online Video, Art Critic, Rachel Campbell-Johnston
