Art enthusiasts are in for a captivating experience at the Princess Grace Irish Library later this month as Dr. Margarita Cappock, an expert on Francis Bacon’s work and a curator of his exhibitions, takes her audience on an insightful journey into the life of this celebrated artist.  

Within the comfortable setting of the Princess Grace Irish Library on the Rue Princesse Marie de Lorraine, the esteemed art historian Dr. Cappock will be delving deep into the mind of Irish-born painter Francis Bacon with a special lecture on the profound influence his native land had on his work and life.  

The event comes on the back on a recent collaboration between Dr. Cappock and U2’s Adam Clayton, a devoted fan of Bacon, which saw the pair produce a documentary on the late, great artist. The documentary was partially filmed in Monaco, where Bacon once resided, adding an intriguing local connection to Dr. Cappock’s subject at the upcoming lecture.  

Following the one-hour presentation, audience members will be invited to stay on to continue the discussion and enjoy an aperitif, making this an engaging and sociable event as well as an educational one.  

The lecture will begin at 6.45pm on Thursday 26th October. It will cost €10 per person and reservations can be made by emailing the info@pgil.mc

Tickets can be purchased here (all proceeds go to the non-profit Fondation Princesse Grace):
