About the event

How did Francis Bacon's art develop him as a person?  What meanings can we discern in his need to depict the damaged body? Who did he paint? Who could he paint?  How do the metaphors he used evolve over the course of his life? These are some of the questions that become clearer if one looks at Bacon through a broadly Jungian lens.

Christopher Bucklow is a British artist and occasional writer. His work is held in the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum New York. During lockdown he wrote a study of Bacon published by Thames and Hudson and the Bacon Estate.
