Francis Bacon (28 October 1909 – 28 April 1992) was an Irish-British figurative painter known for his bold, grotesque, emotionally charged, raw imagery.

THE COLONY ROOM CLUB: was a private members' drinking club for artists and other creative people at 41 Dean Street, Soho, London.The club was founded and presided over by Muriel Belcher from its inception in 1948 until her death in 1979.The artist Francis Bacon was a founding member, walking in the day after it opened. He was 'adopted' by Belcher who called him "Daughter", and gave him free drinks and £10 a week to bring in friends and rich patrons.

1944 CRUCIFIXION: Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion is a 1944 triptych. The Three Studies are generally considered Bacon's first mature piece; he regarded his works before the triptych as irrelevant, and throughout his life tried to suppress their appearance on the art market. He is best known for his depictions of popes, crucifixions and portraits of close friends. His abstracted figures are typically isolated in geometrical cage like spaces, set against flat, nondescript backgrounds. Bacon said that he saw images "in series", and his work typically focuses on a single subject for sustained periods, often in triptych or diptych formats.

DUBLIN: Francis Bacon was born on 28 October 1909 in a nursing home in the heart of old Georgian Dublin at 63 Lower Baggot Street.
