Artists Denis Wirth-Miller and Francis Bacon were friends for more than fifty years. However, while Francis Bacon is recognised today as one of Britain’s foremost painters, Denis Wirth-Miller is relatively unheard of.

This important exhibition, the largest retrospective of Denis’s work to date, seeks to rectify this fact, showcasing the breadth of his paintings, and highlighting the influence he had on Francis and vice versa. I am delighted to have lent over 120 works.

Works by Francis Bacon and Richard Chopping are also included in the show.
