The Life and Art of Francis Bacon with Christian Conrad


Originally born in Dublin, Francis Bacon became famous as a preeminent artist in the post-World War II European world. Creating around 600 pieces of art, Bacon’s work exemplified many of the moods and ideas of the world of the 1950s and 1960s.  His large graphic abstract works often use nightmarish versions of reality, creating a sense of mystery and suspense within the viewer. Celebrated for his turbulent lifestyle, Francis Bacon is considered a quintessential artist of the postwar period.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

 This event is free to the public.

Join us for coffee and donuts!
