Happy birthday Francis Bacon! The celebrated artist was born on this day in 1909 in Dublin, Ireland. Bacon was undoubtedly one of the most unique, engaging Figurative painters to emerge after World War II. He was known for his bold, graphic, and emotionally raw imagery.
Bacon’s portraits and Figurative works often pictured screaming, agonized, or caged figures, which solidified the artist’s reputation as an overwhelmingly compelling and somber observer of human nature.
