I really dig this Bacon Before Prayer painting by Belgian artist, Willy Branckaerts. This is an homage to the fabulous Irish painter, Francis Bacon. Not to be confused with the philosopher/theologian…who I also dig. [They are related].
Not sure of Willy’s affiliation with Bacon. I imagine he is a fan, like me. I actually almost like Branckaerts’ work better than Bacon’s. I find Branckaerts’ work easier to look at. I’d be more inclined to hang it in my home. Not so much with Bacon’s; whose work I prefer to cringe from a safe distance.
I was first introduced to Bacon the painter at the Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin where they have literally reconstructed his studio.
Willy is in the Saatchi gallery. He lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium. If you dig this as much as I do, here is my link to purchase.
