Special talk: Barbara Dawson on Bacon's studio
Director, Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane
Under the direction of Barbara Dawson in August 1998, The Hugh Lane team removed Bacon’s studio and its entire contents from London to Dublin.
Dawson joins us to talk about this undertaking, which involved moving 7000 objects, and of its implication to subsequent exhibitions of Bacon’s work.
