Martin Hammer writes on Francis Bacon's early exhibition history, including his participation in wartime group shows of modern European art at the Lefevre Gallery, London. Comprehensively referencing unpublished letters from the Lefevre Gallery Archive, now in the Tate Gallery Archive, sent between Bacon and the Lefevre's then director, Duncan Macdonald, the article tells of Bacon's early successes and later struggles to sell his ambitious, large-scale paintings in a rather sedate post-War Britain.
