The human figure, the London landscape, the psychology that hides in the urban crowds, are some of the characteristics of this generation of painters. A suggestion when you visit the exhibition: sit in front of Bacon’s “Triptych 1944”, take your time and let yourself be moved by the overwhelming solitude it conveys.
The Picasso Museum of Malaga
