‘Model and Artist; Henrietta Moraes and Francis Bacon’

Co-directed and produced documentary film ‘Model and Artist; Henrietta Moraes and Francis Bacon’ 1993. Screened at the ICA, Centre Pompidou Paris and Haus der Kunst Munich.

Meeting Francis Bacon in London in the Sixties, Henrietta Moraes became his most frequent female subject in both portraits and as the model for his larger works. Filmed during the Francis Bacon exhibition at the Marlborough Gallery, London, Henrietta recalls her impression of the artist. Intercut with archive footage of Bacon in interview, these interviews form a final dialogue between artist and model.
