The Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation produces its first documentary, Bacon: the Van Gogh Sequence
In 1957, in the middle of a transition period in his life, Francis Bacon produced a series of paintings inspired by Van Gogh’s The Painter on the Road to Tarascon.
This series marks a turning point in his work, radically changing his palette. Bright and vivid colours erupt on the canvas. The application of short thick strokes contrasts with his previous works.
This documentary is directed by Alain Amiel and produced by The Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation. It is available on the Foundation website and on YouTube.
