Bacon and Masters

Today the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in Norwich opened Francis Bacon and the Masters. Over 100 works have been brought together with 30 loans from the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, marking the UK/Russia Year of Culture. The loans include works by Velázquez, Rembrandt, Titian, Michelangelo, Rodin, Van Gogh, Picasso and Matisse, many of which have never before been seen in the UK. Shown is Alonso Cano's The Crucifixion (1638). Admission costs £12 for adults, £10.50 for silver surfers (CLICK). The exhibition took four years to plan and was curated by Dr Thierry Morel, who also curated Houghton Revisited (CLICK).
