From 26 April to 17 September 2017, Spain's Museo Picasso Málaga will be displaying nine Francis Bacon works as part of their Bacon, Freud and the School of London exhibition. The displays have been curated by Elena Crippa, an expert on Modern British Art, and organised by Tate London in collaboration with Museo Picasso Málaga.

B. Kitaj, Leon Kossoff, Paula Rego and Euan Uglow. A selection of key works from the Tate will be shown together for the first time in this show.

The nine Francis Bacon works on display as part of the Tate Collection Touring Exhibition are the pictured Second Version of Triptych 1944, 1988, Triptych - August 1972, Figure in a Landscape 1945, Dog 1952, Study for Portrait II (after the Life Mask of William Blake) 1955, Study for Portrait on Folding Bed 1963, Portrait of Isabel Rawsthorne 1966, Reclining Woman 1961, 1972 and Three Figures and Portrait 1975.
