Francis Bacon In Ireland – Dr. Margarita Cappock

September 18, 2023 | 11:00 am


Dr. Margarita Cappock, an art historian, curator, and writer, will deliver an illustrated lecture on the early life of renowned artist Francis Bacon (1909-1992) and his complex relationship with Ireland, his birthplace. Contrary to the belief that Bacon fled Ireland at 16 years of age, never to return, a little known trip to the West of Ireland in 1929 with his companion and first patron, Eric Allden, reveals how influential Ireland was for Bacon and how the origins of his artistic life can be traced to the depths of Connemara.
