Francis Bacon was an Irish-born British painter who created grotesque and powerful works in oil. He used bold color and deformed figures to create a thoroughly modern yet horrific collection of art.

Troubled during his life Bacon's art tells a tumultuous story of existence. We have chosen some of our favorite works below.
