Artcyclopedia : Francis Bacon

The art world is so extensive, new artists are born every day. As Joseph Beuys and Pablo Picasso stated, everyone is born an artist, it’s the ones who maintain their abilities who grow into the form of an artist. The amount of people who do is immense, therefore I decided to start a new column on this blog, namely Artcyclopedia. It’s a way of storing my personal favourites in one place. I will do my best to share an artist that I admire once in a while.

Sometimes images speak louder than words, that’s why these posts will consist mostly out of images. This might even encourage you to bring out the inner researcher and search the internet or books for more information about the artist.

——————————-

The first one that I want to share is Francis Bacon. The idea of this column popped up in my head when I was reading a catalogue about an exhibition of Francis Bacon a few years ago. After reading and looking at the images, I couldn’t help but wanted to share this with you.
