Bacon’s Women, on display from November 2, 2018 – January 11, 2019 at Ordovas, New York, will be the first exhibition in the United States to focus on Francis Bacon’s female subjects. Although historically the emphasis has been on the men in Bacon’s life, the artist was equally engaged with women, many of whom he had long-lasting relationships with, and he painted more female than male nudes. Through a selection of portraits and photographs of his closest female companions, Bacon’s Women will explore the artist’s relationship with the opposite sex and dive into this under-researched area of one of the twentieth century’s greatest painters.
