Francis Bacon Painting, Three Studies for a Crucifixion - 3 1946, 1962

Francis Bacon (1909-1922) was a British figurative painter whose self-taught technique of smears and expressive strokes gained him notoriety throughout his career. His paintings are nightmarish and terrifying, exploring the dark side of the human soul.
