Box of Delights - Francis Bacon's studio

Francis Bacon lived and worked in a small converted coachhouse in London - the ground floor was essentially a large garage in which Bacon stored pretty much anything and on the first floor was his studio where he stored pretty much everything, photos, images torn from newspapers, catalogues, canvases, painting materials, trousers, etc. Bacon recognised it was chaos but found it inspiring. The entire contents, now archived by archaeologists, is now on view at the Hugh Lane Gallery.
