This exhibition brings together paintings of three world-renowned artists: Francis Bacon, Philip Guston and Paula Rego as well as recent paintings by the New York based artist Ahmed Alsoudani. Each of these artists confronts issues of violence and power, shifting between personal, political and historical events while maintaining a dialogue with the tradition of gurative painting. Bacon’s visceral approach to reality, Rego’s often menacing, Boschian stories and folk tales, and Guston’s singular and liberating figurative works of the 1970s are all re ected in the tumult and dynamism of Alsoudani’s work. Alsoudani’s synthesis of these influences lead to his signature conglomerations of symbolic form and gure.

The Great Instauration, Bacon's main work, waspublished in 1620 under the title: Franciscus de Verulamio SummiAngliae Cancellaris Instauratio magna. This great work remained afragment, since Bacon was only able to finish parts of the plannedoutline. The volume was introduced by a Prooemium, which givesa general statement of the purpose, followed by a Dedicationto the King (James I) and a Preface, which is a summary of all“directions, motifs, and significance of his life-work”(Sessions 1996, 71). After that, Bacon printed the plan of theInstauratio, before he turned to the strategy of his researchprogram, which is known as Novum Organum Scientiarum.Altogether the 1620 book constitutes the second part of Part II of theInstauratio, the first part of which is represented by DeAugmentis and Book I of The Advancement of Learning. WhenBacon organized his Instauratio, he divided it into six parts,which reminded contemporary readers of God's work of the six days(the creation), already used by writers like Guillaume Du Bartas(La Sepmaine, ou Création du Monde, 1579, transl. byJoshua Sylvester, Bartas His Devine Weekes &Workes, 1605) and Giovanni Pico della Mirandola(Heptaplus, 1489).
