From Bacon to Doig

National Museum Cardiff

Bacon to Doig is an exhibition selected from a private collection of post-war and contemporary art. The collection features  paintings and sculptures  by many of the very best British artists of the 20th century including Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Barbara Hepworth, Rachel Whiteread and Grayson Perry, and, of course, Peter Doig.

It’s a really exciting exhibition with some amazing contemporary pieces that will enable your group to investigate and discuss themes around landscape, gender and the representation of the figure. It will also give your group a chance to think about how an exhibition is displayed and how a show is curated. If you would like to look at specific themes with your group – please let us know when you book.

Duration: 45 minutes
Cost: Led by Museum staff - £40 for up to 15 pupils, £60 for up to 35. Free for some schools (see booking information).
