Homosexuality
Mirror Thing! Homosexuality

Bacon was a homosexual and not surprisingly had a relationship with men including George Dyer. Bacon had many admirers and many art critics and artists alike felt seduced by him. But that was just his personality. He would never really show anyone the true Francis, showing people only what he wanted them to see.

Bacon was also a gambler and drinker. His Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion was, according to Bacon, painted during a time when he was utterly drunk, and beginning to get a hangover...

It's not really surprising...
