Francis Bacon Pompidou

Description

The late works of Francis Bacon, produced beween 1971 and 1992, reflect the painter's new literary influences, from Georges Bataille to Friedrich Nietzsche. The Centre Pompidou is devoting a new major retrospective to this huge figure of modern art. Francis Bacon depicts a disillusioned and divided world through powerful paintings on violence and madness. His monumental triptychs inspired by religious painting mark the climax of this not-to-miss exhibition.

Centre Pompidou

The Centre Pompidou, designed by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, is a 20th-century architectural marvel, immediately recognizable by its exterior escalators and enormous coloured tubing. It is home to the National Museum of Modern Art and is internationally renowned for its 20th and 21st century art collections. The works of iconic artists are displayed chronologically over two sections: the modern period, from 1905 to 1960 (Matisse, Picasso, Dubuffet, etc.), and the contemporary period, from 1960 to the present day (Andy Warhol, Niki de Saint Phalle, Anish Kapoor, etc.). In addition to its permanent collections, internationally renowned exhibitions are organized every year on the top floor, where visitors can enjoy a breathtaking view of Paris and its rooftops. Everything you might need to spend a pleasant half-day, or indeed a day in the museum is available: eat at Le Georges, learn more at the public information library, and take a break browsing the shelves of the museum gift shop. At the foot of the Centre, the Atelier Brancusi presents a unique collection of works by this artist who played a major role in the history of modern sculpture.
