Pat and Chris could like Bacon's works as well...
I was studying him in my Modern Art History class and his artworks creeped me out. He was actually basing his artworks on classical works like by Titian, Da Vinci, Velasquez, et cetera.
You see the similarities in posture and attires? Bacon did thirty versions
of this classical painting from 1650 by Velasquez before Bacon died.
For me, it just... creeped me out because it showed me how evil the Church is... and the way the face distorted... MY GOD. It was unbearable to sit in the front row to a wall-size projected image of Bacon's work.
