Francis Bacon | Ruskin Spear | 1984

As a result of polio, the English Ruskin Spear was confined to a wheelchair. That’s why his paintings reflect scenes typical of his immediate surroundings: pubs, theaters and shops of his neighborhood. However, he also devoted himself to the portraits he could copy quietly at home, as in Francis Bacon, another British artist.

The artist was influenced by two schools, which are reflected in the painting. On one hand, the Portrait School of Euston Road, which highlighted the naturalism and realism; and, on the other, the Camden Group, English post-impressionists (or expressionists?), influenced by artists like van Gogh or Gauguin..

The portrait of Bacon, we can see a more-or-less realist representation of his physiognomy. We can notice the uneven post-impressionists brushstrokes although, however, the achieved technique of the artist is more evident in the play of lights and shadows in Bacon’s face.
