Bacon and Picasso
Finishing on the 26th July is 'Francis Bacon and the Masters'. If you can get down to the Sainsbury Centre in Norwich before then do so, it's one of those rare exhibitions that can move you and make you realise what heights of emotional intensity artists can achieve. It also recognises the fact that artists take their inspiration from 'giants' of the past, and that the human condition remains the same even though times change and technology moves on.

Bacon's studio on his death, the unfinished drawing on the easel is the one Welz responded to with his video installation.
