Breathtaking! ‘Limits of Mind’ by Francis Bacon First Time Ever in Dubrovnik

One of the most famous modern and contemporary artists, Francis Bacon, is presented today at 6 pm in The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.

His exhibition, ‘Limits of Mind’, is opened until February 2017. For the first time in Croatia, visitors are more than welcomed to see more than 100 pieces of this famous artist – among them, pastel, pencil and her collages, ans so to meet this unique, eccentric artist that captured movement in frames of one piece picture.

Francis Bacon was an Irish-born British figurative painter known for his bold, grotesque, emotionally charged and raw imagery, and his abstracted figures are typically isolated in glass or steel geometrical cages, against flat, nondescript backgrounds… Explore more about this amazing artist on his official web page and, of course, don’t miss tonight’s exhibition!

At the opening night of the exhibition, amazing actor Garry Roost performed the Pope Head The Secret Life of Francis Bacon Featuring Garry Roost, acclaimed portrayal of the great artist an intimate and revealing piece fitting for the event.
