More information about this artwork

This lithograph features the figure of a man sitting at a desk writing against a wall, with a mirror reflecting the backside of his body nearby. The figure appears to be nude, and the line between the actual figure and the reflection is combined, making it unclear where one ends and the other begins. This is a classic example of Francis Bacon’s tendency to abstract the figures he portrays in his works.
