Conversation | Francis Bacon: Revelations

Thursday, May 20, 2021 @ 5:30 pm

By day the painter Francis Bacon explored the secrets of a dark century; by night he swashbuckled through London’s Soho, a Wildean figure who “adored” life and never concealed his homosexuality. In their monumental new biography of the artist, Francis Bacon: Revelations, Mark Stevens ’73 and Annalyn Swan ’73—who won the Pulitzer Prize for de Kooning: An American Master—bring to life this complex man and offer fresh insights into his unforgettable art. Joined by Art Museum Director James Steward.
