although I have long been a fan of Bacon,both of his style of living life to the max and of his work I still have some reserves about his actual skill as a painter.It is clear that on close examination of his painting that he was a very clumsy artist and indeed his 'skill' as an artist lies as much in the way he overcame these technical limitations.I think that is still to early to call on whether he is a great or merely a good artist.
By the way why don't we all arrange a Bacon night,say in the french pub in soho,his regular drinking oasis?
Tom.
