28 October 2009 - 7 March 2010. 'Francis Bacon: A Terrible Beauty' has been hailed as one of Europe's major cultural events of 2009. Comprising paintings which haven't been seen by the public for many years, as well as photographs, drawings and unfinished, slashed canvases, this exhibition celebrates the centenary of the birth in Dublin of one of the greatest modern-day figurative painters, Francis Bacon. The gallery is already home to Bacon's studio where it has been on permanent display since 1998. In a pioneering move, the studio was transferred from London to Dublin in its entirety (including its 7,000 items) and provides an eerie but fascinating insight into Bacon's world.

Tues-Thurs: 10.00
