Following its run at Tate Liverpool earlier this year, the exhibition 'Francis Bacon. Invisible Rooms' travels to Germany's Staatsgalerie Stuttgart this month.

From 7 October, forty major paintings and triptychs as well as rarely shown works on paper, will be showcased in an exhibition exploring Francis Bacon's pictorial strategy.

The remarkable positioning of Francis Bacon's subjects is the focus, showing how Bacon's 'invisible rooms' emphasise the isolation of his sitters and direct attention to their psychological states.

The exhibition is further illuminated by a German/English bilingual catalogue. The book is edited by Ina Conzen and contains contributions from members of Staatgalerie Stuttgart and Tate Liverpool, as well as Christian Spies and Martin Lewis Harrison.

For more information including ticketing, associated events and further insight, please visit the exhibition website.

'Francis Bacon. Invisible Rooms' is a joint exhibition organised by Staatsgalerie Stuttgart and Tate Liverpool. Earlier this year Tate Liverpool hosted 'Francis Bacon: Invisible Rooms', describing the show as ‘the largest Francis Bacon exhibition ever staged in the north of England’, you can read more on the past Tate Liverpool show via our previous news article.
