Preparing for the exhibtion Credit: ITV News AngliaWorks by some of the world's greatest artists will go on display at the Sainsbury Centre in Norwich this week.

"Even if you're not particularly interested in Francis Bacon, some of the works alone, there is a Matisse here that is an absolute joy to see. And some Rodin scultptures that will bring you to your knees. I think the pleasure is the relationship between objects, seeing echoes of other artist's work remade through Bacon's paintings but also delighting in some really, really beautiful things"
– AMANDA GEITNER, CHIEF CURATOR
