Francis Bacon (28 October 1909 – 28 April 1992) was an Irish born figurative painter of English descent who was in the late 1980s the world's most expensive living painter. His artwork is known for its bold, austere, graphic and often tortured imagery. Abstract figures typically appear isolated in glass or steel geometrical cages set against flat, nondescript backgrounds. Bacon began painting during his early 20s; yet he worked only sporadically until his mid 30s.
