This month Art Below will be featuring posters of Crucifixion drawings by Francis Bacon from 'The Francis Bacon Collection of the drawings donated to Cristiano Lovatelli Ravarino' at stations including St.Paul's, Green Park and Bond Street. 

The original Bacon works will be unveiled on Monday evening at St Stephen Walbrook, an Anglican Parish Church rich in heritage, based in the heart of the City of London. The exhibition has been planned to coinside with lent and will run until 31st March.

On show will be a number of drawings, pastels and collages that Francis Bacon donated to his Italian lover Cristiano Lovatelli Ravarino between 1977 and 1992.  Many of the works are concerned with the image of crucifixion often referenced by Francis Bacon in his art to embody life's horror as he could not find a subject as valid to embrace all the nuances of human feelings and behaviours.
