ABOUT THIS PIECE Francis Bacon's Figure with Meat was created in 1954 and is in Art Institute of Chicago. The size of the work is 129,9 x 121,9 cm and is made of oil on canvas. Figure with Meat is part of a now-famous series he devoted to Diego Velázquez’s Portrait of Pope Innocent X (c. 1650; Galleria Doria-Pamphilj, Rome). Here he transformed the Spanish Baroque artist’s iconic portrayal of papal authority into a nightmarish image, in which the blurred figure of the pope, seen as if through a veil, seems trapped in a glass-box torture chamber, his mouth open in a silent scream. Instead of the noble drapery that frames Velázquez’s pope, Bacon is flanked by two sides of beef, quoting the work of seventeenth-century Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijn and twentieth-century Russian artist Chaim Soutine, both of whom painted brutal and haunting images of raw meat. The Artist: Francis Bacon (1909 - 1992) was an Irish-born British figurative painter known for his emotionally charged raw imagery and fixation on personal motifs.
