As a 6th-form art student, I have to write an essay on distortion in portraits.
Under the chapter of Francis Bacon, I have stumbled into a dead end. In all the reports, books, articles and what-nots about Bacon I have read, I still cannot find any reason WHY his portraits are so disfigured, disformed and distorted.
Can anyone kindly be of help, as to pointing me in the right direction with use of web pages, books, etc.
To be of even more help, could anyone possibly simply give me any useful information at all?
Thank you for your time,
and it's a great site, too.
