I agree very much with you. I think what Bacon was painting was the essence of humans. We see ourselves, usually, as decent people, but Bacon was willing to create visual images of what he/we are really like. By removing himself so much from the physicality of what he was painting, he was able to get down to the actual ungraspable definition of a certain aspect of humankind.
