A monumental exhibition dedicated to the British artist, Francis Bacon, will open at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao on September 30. The show, Francis Bacon: From Picasso to Velazquez, is based on an exhibition that was on view at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco earlier this summer. In addition to the works from the Grimaldi show, the Guggenheim exhibition will feature paintings by numerous Spanish masters, including Pablo Picasso, El Greco, and Diego Velazquez, who influenced Bacon’s career.
