Summary

Kultur's Artists of the 20th Century series presents in-depth discussions of both the notable works of and the lives of some of the most acclaimed figures of the art world. This entry looks at Francis Bacon. Sharing a name with the famous 16th century philosopher, Bacon the painter would go on to gain nearly equal notoriety. Often disturbing, Bacon's surreal impressionistic style was heavily influenced by the world climate following World War II. Other episodes in the series include Artists of the 20th Century: Andy Warhol, Artists of the 20th Century: Henri Matisse, and Artists of the 20th Century: Marcel Duchamp. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
