"When they think of Francis Bacon, most people think: torment. Tortured and torqued figures, wailing, screaming, headless, chinless, from world and his personal history, portrayed under attack for being gay (which was actually illegal when he began to emerge as a painter) or being political or just being different. Bacon sampled poetry, power, religion, world events, spiritualism, hypocrisy and homophobia in a mix with liner notes that told of isolation and fear. That sense of discomfort you got from the confrontational work turned you on or off; Bacon referred to himself as a "pulverizing machine into which everything I look at and feel is fed."" - Patricia Zohn: Culture Zohn: Francis Bacon: The Painter as Pulverizing Machine - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/patricia-zohn/culture-zohn-francis-baco_b_205750.html#

"Francis Bacon: A Centenary Retrospective, the first comprehensive exhibition to feature the artist’s works in New York in 20 years opened to the public May 20 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, to run through August 16, 2009. The retrospective, marking the 100th anniversary of Bacon’s birth, has brought together a highly impressive international curatorial team, including Gary Tinterow of the Met, Matthew Gale of Tate Modern and Chris Stephens of Tate Britain. The exhibition showcases some 65 paintings, amongst them a handful of never-before-seen gems from private collections, along with important archival materials, photographs and 65 personal items from Bacon’s London studio and estate, which served as the artist’s inspiration for some of the works in the show." - http://artobserved.com/go-see-new-york-francis-bacon-a-centenary-retrospective-at-the-metropolitan-museum-of-art-through-august-16-2009/
