As you know there is alway some sort of debate on whether an Artist sees figures in that manner. Did Picasso see blue? rose, monkey women? The fact is that Bacon was, like those that came beform him, merely puting together those parts that pleased him most, his ideal. An interviewer asked him why he painted the "wrestlers" as he did and Bacon Replied "I like boys". So to say they hold some truth abouy reality would only be true if you (the viewer) were Bacon himself. Then this would be your reality.
