Throughout 2020 art galleries and exhibitions have been forced to temporarily close their doors to the public. The good news, however, is that as we enter the final quarter of the year galleries are beginning to get back to business as usual. Amongst these are a number with works by Francis Bacon on display.
Some galleries may now require up-front booking, though some are still open to walk-ins and almost all have reduced their opening hours to some extent. Regardless, we thought it an apt time to share where you can see works by Francis Bacon in the flesh once again.
