Francis Bacon 
Image result for francis bacon artist
 Francis Bacon is one of the most revolutionary artist’s of the 20th century. His work to me, exemplifies raw emotion. Initially his artwork looks terrifying. It is scary, twisted, blurry and somewhat gruesome. In my opinion this kind of dismorphic surrealism is engaging and I automatically want to delve deeper into the piece. I respect Francis Bacon and admire him as an individual because he wasn’t afraid to break the stereotypical idea of normalcy. He sought to expose people at their very core and instead of painting what he saw he painted what he felt. His art exudes emotion and feeling and that to me holds a significant amount of value.
