Bill Brandt photography in Francis Bacon and Henry Moore: Terror and Beauty

Francis Bacon and Henry Moore: Terror and Beauty at the AGO features more than 30 archival photographs by the acclaimed German-born British photographer Bill Brandt, including many views of London during the Second World War, as well as portraits of Bacon and Moore. Brandt, a resident of London, specialized in night scenes and captured evocative moonlit views of London in eerie darkness during the Blitz and its blackouts, showing buildings in ruin and people crowding into improvised shelters.
