Library JournalFrancis Bacon's (1909�92) work is largely figurative, though dark and often violent. Strongly influenced by photography, existentialism, and historical events such as World War II, the British-born artist's paintings feel autobiographical yet impersonal and allusive. Hammer (art history & philosophy, Univ. of Kent; Francis Bacon and Nazi Propaganda) has written a comprehensive overview of the artist's turbulent life and paintings.
