Two giants of painting, Francis Bacon (1909–1992) and Lucian Freud (1922–2011), together for the first time in an Italian exhibition curated by Elena Crippa, Curator of Modern and Contemporary British Art, Tate. 

In addition to Bacon and Freud, the show features a group of artists who have marked an epoch, inspired generations, and used painting to illustrate life: Michael Andrews, Frank Auerbach, Leon Kossoff, and Paula Rego. A group of heterogeneous artists who were born between the early 20th century (1909 Bacon) and the 1930s (1935 Rego), and who emigrated to England for different reasons, made London their home – a place to study, work, and live

Through a chronological and thematic approach, the exhibition illustrates the frailty and vitality of the human condition.
