Spareribs by Bacon

Spareribs van Bacon - Lyklema Fine Art

Bacon (1909-1992) is one of the most important artists of the last century and, with his surrealist and expressionist style, a precursor of the neo-expressionism of the 1980s. He is the English artist of the 1970s. He was born in Ireland but made it big on the streets, prostitution and stealing in London. His life was full of bacchanalia, love affairs, drugs and enormous successes. 'My images arise from chaos.' Aesthetics, Eroticism and Psychology fascinate him. Sadism is no stranger to him either. With his perfectly placed, powerful brushstrokes, he easily ranks with Rembrandt and Titian. Bacon exclusively made paintings and managed to capture his tortured figures in an attitude of pain and fear. The gaping mouth, the raw meat and the cage-like frame are themes that often return in Bacon. This work, Figure with meat (1955), was inspired by a work 'Portrait Of Pope Innocent During his career he made no fewer than 45 variations inspired by this painting. He collected numerous art books featuring this work. On his first visit to Rome in 1954, he did not go to see the work so as not to be disappointed.
