Be blown away by Francis Bacon when you visit his new exhibition at Madrid’s Museo del Prado.

The exhibition of 78 paintings includes unique works, 15 of his most important triptychs – including a 1984 work stemming from a private collection - and a documentary that reveals his source of inspiration.

Organised by Tate Britain in London and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the exhibition is meant to honour the artist who was born 100 years ago and died in Madrid of a heart attack in 1992.

Some of Bacon’s most famous work on display include Three Studies for Figures at a Base of a Crucifixion (1944) and the series Study after Velázquez’s Portrait of Pope Innocent X (1950s).
