Bacon’s Women is the first exhibition in the United States to focus on Francis Bacon’s female subjects. Although historically the emphasis has been on the men in Bacon’s life, the artist was equally engaged with women, many of whom he had long-lasting relationships with. Through a selection of portraits and photographs of his closest female companions, Bacon’s Women explores the artist’s relationship with the opposite sex and dives into this under-researched area of one of the 20th century’s greatest painters. This catalogue includes an essay by Martin Harrison, as well as a conversation between Karen Alexander and Hurvin Anderson.
