In its third exhibition of his work, Gagosian New York presents over twenty-five paintings made by Bacon in London and Paris during the last two decades of his life.
Different from his visceral brushwork of the 1940s to 1970s, Bacon sprayed his paint to add a chiaroscuro and refinement to his familiar figures, forever caught in a sense of primal fear.
