Francis Bacon/Henry Moore: Flesh and Bone

The Ashmolean presents a major exhibition featuring the work of two great British artists: Francis Bacon and Henry Moore, both giants of 20th century western art.

Although the artists were contemporaries of each other, they worked in very different artistic fields.

Moore (1898-1986) was best known for his semi-abstract monumental bronze sculptures while Bacon (1909-1992) was a figurative painter known for his graphic and emotionally raw imagery.

On show at the Ashmolean is an extensive collection of paintings by Bacon and sculptures and drawings by Moore, allowing visitors to compare the similarities and contrasts between both artists' work.

Tues-Wed 10.00-17.00. Thurs-Sat 10.00-19.00. Sun 12.00-17.00. Mon closed.
