The Francis Bacon Italian drawings

This association exists to collect and catalogue the Italian drawings of Francis Bacon.

The collection consists of a large number of drawings, created between 1970 and 1990.

The drawings were a gift from Bacon to his Italian friend Cristiano Lovatelli Ravarino.

The story of these drawings can be read in Umberto Guerini’s book “The Tip of an Iceberg”.
