Francis Bacon   works from the estate

Triptych, 1991   Oil on canvas each 78 x 58 in.

  Francis Bacon
"In the complicated stage in which painting is now, the moment there are several figures - at any rate several figures on the same canvas - the story begins to be elaborated. And the moment the story is elaborated, the boredom sets in; the story talks louder than the paint. This is because we are actually in very primitive times once again, and we haven't been able to cancel out the story-telling between one image and another." -FB
(all quotations from a 1962 interview with David Sylvester)
