See Francis Bacon's Study for a Portrait

On display in the 1950 room at Tate Britain, we are told that Francis Bacon's Study for a Portrait 1952 dates from an important  point in Bacon's portraiture, probably created in the studio Rodrigo Moynihan at the Royal College of Art in London.

We're also told that Study for a Portrait shows us Bacon had developed an interest in the mouth, possibly as a result of buying a book on diseases of the mouth in 1935 in Paris.
