BBC News reports that the Tate Britain gallery has acquired a collection of 1,200 artworks from the late gay artist Francis Bacon. The works were owned by Barry Joule, a neighbor and friend of the artist, who died in 1992 at age 82. The gallery said that it hoped the items, which will eventually go on display, would help "scholars to resolve remaining issues about Bacon's working practice."
