Product Description

Francis Bacon: Artists of the 20th Century

His major impact on the art world began in 1944 with his Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion. Though he was initially inspired by Surrealism, Bacon's work was frequently influenced by the imagery of the old masters, usually translated into blurred and gory figures imprisoned in unspecific, architectural settings. A techincal perfectionist, Bacon destroyed a great deal of his copius output.
Still, he is widely regarded as Britain's most important post-war artist. This video explores his career and examines images of some of his greatest works.
