Although Bacon never attended art school, he began to draw and work in watercolor about 1926—27. Pablo Picasso’s work decisively influenced his painting until the mid-1940s. Upon Bacon’s return lo London in 1929 he established himself as a furniture designer and interior designer. He began to use oils in the fall of that year and exhibited furniture and rugs as well as a few paintings in his studio. His work was included in a group exhibition in London at the Mayor Gallery in 1933. In 1934 the artist organized his own first solo show at Sunderland House, London, which be called Transition Gallery for the occasion. he participated in a group show at Thomas Agnew and Sons in London in 1937.
