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 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.

Featuring over a hundred artworks selected by writer and curator James Birch, ‘Landscapes and Beasts’ will showcase many previously unseen pieces by Wirth-Miller, as well as works by Francis Bacon and Wirth-Miller’s partner Richard ‘Dicky’ Chopping.
