Video: Francis Bacon and the Masters

Sarfraz Manzoor takes a look at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts' riveting exhibition.

Francis Bacon and the Masters looks at the artistic influences of one of our most visceral and engaging modern painters to expose exciting parallels between Bacon’s unflinching artistic outlook and the work of some of art’s great practitioners; Van Gogh, Rembrandt and Velázquez to name a few. Sarfraz Manzoor goes behind-the-scenes as the exhibition is hung to bring you the five key areas of interest.
