Francis Bacon. Self-Portrait. 1969.   --I cannot help wondering what put him over the edge (if anything)--some artists are wack, some are just good at digging into what that "wack" must feel like...

Francis Bacon - Self-Portrait, 1969 oil on canvas, x cm private collection

Francis Bacon was no easier on himself as a subject, as he was with others. He depicted himself just as he did with his sitters. In this self portrait the artist be suffering from a hangover. He could also be referring to time and death. Is the artist simply suffering from a headache or is his hidden wrist bleeding into the sink?
