Lucian Freud

I have found Freud’s work almost painful to look at. The characters all look like they’re in some long drawn out depression. Or at least a bad mood. Nevertheless it is beautiful work. He is in a way handicapped by his family’s name. People automatically associate his work with Sigmund Freud’s ideas. Perhaps someone could make a case for it but I don’t see it.

Francis Bacon

The first time I saw a Bacon painting I thought I was looking at a hybrid. Some kind of cross between Henry Moore and Picasso. Except it was scarier. Was Frances Bacon, Jack the Ripper? God, he seems to be hiding some horrible crime. Perhaps the western tradition of art. It does look like work for a psychiatrist. And yet I love it. Twisted am I.
