A Good Read on Francis Bacon

Considered an artist of the macabre in his time, Francis Bacon (Oct. 28, 1909 to April 28, 1992) has been on my top list of hard hitters since the 70's. Bacon's instinctual expression and psychological content both fascinates and repells.

In London last July, Study for Head of George Dyer, 1967, by Francis Bacon sold for a cool £13.8m with buyer’s premium.
Gone but not forgotten, read The Art Newspaper's Francis Bacon claims his place at the top of the market.

“Francis Bacon” is at Tate Britain in London from 11 September to 4 January 2009. The exhibition travels to the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid (3 February-19 April 2009) and the Metropolitan Museum in New York (18 May-16 August 2009).
