Francis Bacon at Claude Bernard Gallery, Paris, 1977

Just about to go check out the Retrospective of Francis Bacon at Met.

Dublin born and  London lived Bacon went to an exhibition of 106 drawings by Picasso in the Summer of 1927, at the Galerie Paul Rosenberg, rue La Boëtie, in Paris, that inspired him to draw and paint. Bacon would take the train into Paris five or more times a week to see shows. Sometimes he would return with Cubist-inspired drawings and watercolours.  Bacon never had a formal education to paint.  In 1928, after he returned to London, he started working as an Interior designer. Picasso was one of his important muse and inspirations during his time. In 1944 he achieved instant notoriety with a series of controversial paintings, Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion.

Some of friends already had checked it out and feed backs are all different so far. I see the darkness, anger and almost horror in many of his work but it does not mean any bad to me. I see great depth of emotions in his work. I do love the colors and cubism like distortion and divisions of his objects definitely interest me. His almost filthy studio was a lot talked about. I have seen a few photos of them too. I quite look forward to seeing all of his chaos like fascinating work and notorious everything!

    [...] William Kentridge. Drawing from Stereoscope 1998–99. Charcoal, pastel, and colored pencil on paper, 47 1/4 x 63″ (120 x 160 cm). The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Gift of The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art, with special contributions from Anonymous, Scott J. Lorinsky, Yasufumi Nakamura, and The Wider Foundation.  William Kentridge’s still drawings and portraits greatly reminds me of ones of Francis Bacon. Not in all aspects a of it but especially the line quality. /www.lacasapark.com/la/2009/07/francis-bacon-1909-1992/ [...]
