Francis Bacon - Man in Blue VII


Man in Blue VII (1954)

"In these claustrophobic curtained settings, there loom up before us beings whose shadowy, ambiguous, unexpected presence takes command of any setting they survey, making real beings seem like shadows. They are as appalling as they are compelling, for these are creatures faced with their tragic destiny."

D. Sylvester, quoted in The British Pavilion: Exhibition of Works by NicholsonBacon, Freud, Venice XXVII Biennale, Venice, 1954
