Oedipus and the Sphinx (Bacon after Ingres)



Visitors to the Berardo Museum have the opportunity to compare two interpretations of the same subject: Oedipus and the Sphinx.
Thanks to the loan by the Louvre museum, the painting upon the mythological riddle asked to Oedipus by the Sphinx, by the french neoclassical painter Auguste-Dominique Ingres, is placed aside the work "Oedipus and the Sphinx after Ingres" by Francis Bacon, part of the Berardo Collection.
The exhibition ends on January 10, 2010.
