Six Francis Bacon works are currently on display from 5 May to 31 December 2017 at Germany's Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen as part of their 6 x Francis Bacon and other highlights of the 'Lambrecht-Schadeberg Collection'. Having acquired the large-format painting Portrait 1962, the Lambrecht-Schadeberg Collection now owns six of Francis Bacon's works and provides one of the most important Bacon collections in Europe.

All six Bacon works in the Lambrecht-Schadeberg collection encompass representative works from all of the artist's creative phases. Since being founded almost twenty years ago, the Lambrecht-Schade Collection now has over 200 works, including paintings, drawings, graphics as well as photographs and sculptural works.
