Description

Francis Bacon – Quote:
“Triptychs are the thing I like doing most, and I think this may be related to the thought I’ve sometimes had of making a film. I like the juxtaposition of the images separated on three different canvases. So far as my work has any quality, I often feel perhaps it is the triptychs have the most quality.” (Francis Bacon, 1979).
