Movement and Gravity: Bacon and Rodin


Movement and Gravity: Bacon and Rodin in dialogue is the first exhibition ever dedicated to exploring the connections between Francis Bacon and Auguste Rodin. Bacon’s interest in Rodin was documented as early as 1950; a reproduction of Le Penseur, 1880, was included among a selection of Bacon’s pictorial sources at his Cromwell Place studio. With an essay by Martin Harrison, this catalogue revisits Bacon’s high estimation of Rodin.
