The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts major exhibition 'Francis Bacon and the Masters' is set to finish on 26 July. If you are yet to experience the show, or are looking to revisit, here is some information on the exhibition's last weeks.

'Francis Bacon and the Masters' sees over twenty-five works by Bacon displayed (including the pictured Portrait of Lisa, 1957) beside pieces by Rembrandt, Velazquez, Rodin, Michelangelo, Picasso, Bernini, Cezanne, Titian, Matisse and Van Gogh, as well as examples of antique Greek, Roman and Egyptian sculpture from the State Hermitage Museum. Many of these works had never before travelled to the UK. Find out more about the show here.

Every Tuesday - Friday until the exhibition's end, the Sainsbury Centre provides the opportunity for guided tours of 'Francis Bacon and the Masters'. For more information on these tours including pricing click here.

During the exhibition's run a season of films inspired by 'Francis Bacon and the Masters' has been programmed and introduced by film expert Chris Rodden. This concludes with a screening of Jean Cocteau's 'L'Orphee' on July 20th via Cinema City, Norwich. For more information on location and tickets please click here.

It is always a pleasure to see Francis Bacon's art celebrated and exhibited in major exhibitions such as 'Francis Bacon and the Masters'. We hope that all who have visited the exhibition enjoyed viewing Francis Bacon's art, and we invite you to share your experiences with us in the comments section below. Finally, we hope that many more people take the opportunity to view this wonderful collection of Francis Bacon works in this special show’s final weeks.
