Francis BACON


 Francis Bacon was born in 1909 in Dublin to a father who trained racehorses and an heir to a family of industrialists. A sick child with asthma, abused by his father, who rejected him all the more when his homosexuality was revealed, Francis Bacon left the family home at the age of sixteen. He became a decorator while painting canvases of surreal influence. His first solo exhibition in 1934 did not receive a great echo, it was not until 1945 and the scandal caused by the violence of his triptych "Three studies for characters at the foot of a crucifixion" that his canvases were noticed and bought by museums.

In 1957, see his first exhibition in Paris and in 1962 he exhibited at the Tate Gallery in London. The triptych form became his favorite mode of expression, just as he often produced his works in the form of series around themes such as crucifixion, self-portrait, or models of friends (George Dyer, Isabel Rawsthorne) . These bodies or faces are always mutilated, tortured, misshapen as if torn but without abstraction. Francis Bacon died in 1992 during a trip to Madrid.
