Tate Britain Will Show Bacons Rare Interior Design Work
Rare interior design works that eluded Francis Bacons attempts to destroy his early, “inferior” output will soon be on display at the Tate Britain in honor of what would have been his 100th birthday on Oct. 28.

The pieces, on loan from a private collector, were made around 1929, when the painter worked in London as an interior decorator. “Francis Bacon: Early Work” will include three rugs and a painted screen, as well as some of his earliest paintings. Experts say the pieces will demonstrate the ways in which Bacon’s career as an interior designer influenced his later artwork. The exhibition opens on Oct. 26.
