Francis Bacon is considered to be one of the most important figure and portrait painters in Britain in the 20th century. This book places all aspects of his output in relation to his life, freely examining in depth the effects of his homosexuality and raunchy living style on his painting. Bacon was born in Dublin in 1909 and moved to London in 1926. He came to prominence in 1945 as a result of his "Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixition" which sent shock waves through the British art world. In the 1950s his paintings displayed more aggression and violence, but his later works became more open and colour-intensive, though they were never without a feeling of despair. Bacon died in 1992
