Remembering Bacon

Happy Birthday Francis Bacon! The celebrated artist was born on this day in 1909 in Dublin, Ireland. Bacon was undoubtably one of the most unique, engaging Figurative painters to emerge after World War II, known for his bold, graphic and emotionally raw imagery. 

His portraits and figurative works often pictured screaming, agonized, or caged figures, which solidified his reputation as an overwhelmingly compelling, if somber, observer of human nature.
