7 Reece Mews Studio, London

The British painter, Francis Bacon was very secretive about his painting methods and his studio space, 7 Reece Mews, London, where he worked for the last 30 years of his life. After Bacon’s death, his studio and its entire contents were removed and relocated inside the The Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin, Ireland after his death. The Francis Bacon Studio Database is the first computerised archive of the entire contents of a world ranking artist’s studio. Consisting of a kitchen with a bath and living room that doubled as a bedroom, his tiny chaotic studio cluttered with painting materials, canvasses photographs, books, notes, serves as a magnetic database and archive of the artist and his work.
