Francis Bacon - Figure Writing Reflected in Mirror

bacon.jpg

Figure Writing Reflected in a Mirror shows a male figure in white underwear who bears a distinct resemblance to the artist's lover George Dyer, who, with breathtaking timing, killed himself on the eve of Bacon's important retrospective at the Grand Palais, Paris, in October 1971. The black sweep of hair resembles Bacon, so it can be interpreted as representing both artist and lover.

 

Dublin-born Bacon was hugely inspired by literature, whether the Oresteia or TS Eliot, and the figure writing, with crumpled paper on the floor, would seem to be a direct manifestation of the artist's obsession with the written word. No other Bacon canvas has someone writing.
