Francis Bacon (1909-1992) was an Ireland born British figurative painter. Bacon's artwork is known for its bold, austere, homoerotic and often violent or nightmarish imagery, which typically shows room-bound masculine figures isolated in glass or steel geometrical cages set against flat, nondescript backgrounds. A late starter, Bacon did not begin painting until he was in his late 20s.   more from wikipedia »
