Ufff, with so much work I was starting to fear that I'd miss the Francis Bacon exhibition now on display at the Prado Museum in Madrid until 16 April.
At last, I've managed to go this afternoon. I came out of it moved by so much beauty. [Including disturbing beauty] Breathtaking!
The photo illustrating this post is not of a Bacon painting. It is a digital self-portrait which I had filed as "Rémi Bacon-style" when I shot it accidentally a couple of years ago. This evening, I think it was a bit silly on my part; I'll have to give it a different name. It's a disturbing picture, but it doesn't have any of Bacon's magic.
