Francis Bacon Biography

Francis Bacon was born in Dublin, Ireland,on October 28th, 1909. He was the second of five children of a steel heiress and a race-horse trainer and former army officer. He spent his childhood at Cannycourt, Kildare. In 1914, his father took the family to London and they divided the post-war years between London and Ireland. His father threw him out of the family home because of his homosexuality. In 1927, Francis Bacon traveled to Berlin and Paris. He was impressed by an exhibition of Picasso at Paul Rosenberg's gallery and decided to begin painting and drawing. He established himself at Queensbury Mews West, South Kensington in England. He worked as a furniture and interior designer in the modernist style of Eileen Gray and started to exhibit his works in 1929.He shared a studio show with the painters Jean Shepeard and Roy de Maistre. In the following years he organized his first solo exhibition but it was not well received and he responded by destroying the paintings. In 1939, Bacon was exempted fron military service because of the asthma he suffered throughout his life.He spent 1941 painting in Hampshire and from these years emerged the works he will consider as the beginning of his career.The following years saw a period of success and in 1963 Bacon's international reputation was confirmed with the retrospective at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and by the publication of Ronald Alley's catalogue raisonne. In the 1970's, Francis Bacon traveled often to New York and Paris. International exhibitions became more wide-ranging (Marseilles, Mexico, Caracas, Madrid, Barcelona, Tokyo) and reinforced the perception of Bacon as the greatest British painter since J.M.W. Turner. During a visit to Madrid in 1992, he was hospitalized with pneumonia exacerbated by asthma and died on April 28th, 1992.
