Centro Cultural Borges presents the exhibition "Francis Bacon - The tip of the iceberg", an outstanding display of 40 black and white drawings attributed to Francis Bacon, which have already been exhibited in the context of the Venice Biennale 2009 and recently in Milan's Durini Foundation.
Curated by renowned art critic Edward Lucie-Smith and Max Scaringela, the drawings will be displayed for the first time in Argentina, featuring intimate works by the Irish artist. These are large sheets portraing individual scenes that reveal characters subject to the deformations characteristic of the artist.
The images on paper once again reaffirm the reasons why Bacon is widely recognized as one of the most original artists of the twentieth century. Among the themes of the works are the Popes, inspired by the portrait of Innocent X by Velazquez, the Crucifixion, portraits and self portraits.

Address: Centro Cultutal Borges. Viamonte 525
Dates: June 30 - August 19, 2010
Opening times: 
Monday to Saturday, 10 am to 9 pm
Sunday 12 noon to 9 pm
Entry fee: AR $ 10.-
