Francis Bacon

Part of my final assignment was to copy a famous artists work. I chose Francis Bacon as my artist. If I could use one word to describe Bacon and his work, it would be creepy. I didn’t do too much background investigation on him but I did find out that he was an Atheist and gay. My creativity truly suffered from this class. Basically everything that was done in class was a copy, coupled with the fact that I had two other very demanding courses. So the piece of Bacon’s that I chose to copy was one that would be easily replicable, and one that was still representative of Bacon’s work. I chose the painting titled “Blood on Pavement” which is one of his later works where he was exploring the use of oil paints.
