Bacon's Life

From child to artistic genius

There's a sense of theatre in all the pictures. He lived his life in the same kind of way. I think he lived his life as theatre and spent all his social time out in clubs, in pubs, on the street, in restaurants, wearing makeup, being a personality - he was on display.
