Louisiana Poster featuring Francis Bacon's, Man and Child (1963), a work also in Louisiana's collection. The British, Irish-born painter, Francis Bacon (1909-1992), is known as a figurative painter for his raw, disturbing imagery and is considered among the most important painters of the 20th century. He has often been exhibited at Louisiana and is well known to the museum's audience.
Francis Bacon's work can only be categorized with difficulty, but he has had an impact on a generation of other, younger painters, e.g. Baelitz, Kiefer, Chia and Clemente.
Bacon's artistic roots can be found in interwar surrealism and since the 1940s he has developed his strongly personal style - described as a kind of "figurative action-painting", which contains a synthesis of violence and beauty, a simultaneously brutal but also tender presence.
