October 28, 1909 (Dublin, Ireland) - April 28, 1992 (Madrid, Spain).
Francis Bacon produced some of the most iconic images of wounded and traumatized humanity in post-war art. Borrowing inspiration from Surrealism, film, photography, and the Old Masters, he forged a distinctive style that made him one of the most widely recognized exponents of figurative art in the 1940s and 1950s.
Bacon is here shown in his own circles.
