Francis Bacon

Below are the links to a fascinating 6 part documentary on the painter Francis Bacon.
if you're not familiar with him i've put the link to google images in the title
but he does stuff like this,

beautifully grotesque.

I saw his exhibition at the national gallery in london last november and since then he's become an absolute inspiration to me, so it's really nice to get an insight into his fucked up paintings.
I've spent ages trying to fathom how on earth he does the style he does and i can't for the life of me figure it out.

this was aired on the BBC culture show sometime back in the 90's
