'Triptych (right section)' by Francis Bacon (1974) #contemporary #art http://www.criticarte.com/Page/ensayos/text/FrancisBacon.html Francis Bacon. De la metamorfosis a la disgregación Dr. Adolfo Vásquez Rocca
Francis Bacon was no easier on himself as a subject, as he was with others. He depicted himself just as he did with his sitters. In this self portrait the artist be suffering from a hangover. He could also be referring to time and death. Is the artist simply suffering from a headache or is his hidden wrist bleeding into the sink?
