Made it to the Francis Bacon exhibition at the Tate in its last few days, and it was well worth it, despite the irksome crowds. I particularly enjoyed his studies of Pope Innocent X, which I find very sinister indeed. I also really like the paintings he did not long before he died, still going strong in his early eighties. If I had to choose an absolute favourite though, it would be this, his portait of George Dyer riding a bicycle (1966).
