Francis Bacon and the Crucifixion

Senza titolo

The text of the talk that I gave at St Stephen Walbrook on Monday about 'Francis Bacon and the Crucifixion' can be found by clicking here.

Next Monday (13 March) at 6.30pm I will give a second talk entitled 'The Crucifixion in modern art'. The poet Rupert Loydell will also read his own and others’ Francis Bacon-related poems, plus poems from his new collection ‘Dear Mary’. 'Rupert Loydell has produced consistently interesting and multi-dimensional work for over 25 years now, combining heterodox strands of art, faith, postmodernism, criticism, love of music, wit and humour.’ Jay Ramsay

Then on Wednesday 29 March at 7.00pm, the Italian pianist Claudio Crismani will perform a Homage to Francis Bacon. This concert is free, with a retiring collection for St Stephen Walbrook. The programme is as follows:
