Picture of a lithography by Francis Bacon
Francis Bacon was one of the major artists of the 20th century. He is known for his emotionally charged paintings and for his raw vision of the human condition after WWII. Francis Bacon was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1909 to English parents. He started to work as an interior decorator and as a designer of furniture and rugs in London. His breakthrough as a painter came in 1944. He produced Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion, which allowed him to establish his unique figurative style in an art world dominated by abstraction. The distorted subjects are depicted in organic and ochre colors with rough brushstrokes.
