Opposite Hauser there is a delightful and excellent exhibition at Ordovas Gallery: ‘Irrational Remarks: Bacon-Rembrandt’. It explores the influences of Rembrandt’s self-portraits on Francis Bacon’s own self-portraits, featuring works of both artists, including Rembrandt’s ‘Self Portrait with Beret’. In the downstairs space of the gallery, clips are shown from ‘Sunday Night Francis Bacon’, the film where the artists speaks to the art critic David Sylvester.This is the gallery’s inaugural exhibition founded by Pilar Ordovas who previously was a former director of postwar and contemporary art at Christie’s and director of the Gagosian Gallery in London. Her ambition is to program historical exhibitions. ‘Bacon-Rembrandt’ sets a high standard for future exhibitions.
