Irrational Marks: Bacon and Rembrandt


Irrational Marks: Bacon and Rembrandt is the first exhibition to be devoted to exploring the connections and influences of Rembrandt’s late self-portraits on Francis Bacon’s own self-portraits. Bacon considered Rembrandt’s self-portraits the artist’s greatest works and he spoke in depth about his Self-Portrait with Beret in the Musée Granet in Aix-en-Provence, which he often visited. Published on the occasion of Ordovas’ inaugural exhibition, this catalogue includes essays by Martin Harrison and Taco Dibbits.
