More information about this artwork

The identity of the figure that Francis Bacon portrays here is unclear. It invokes Bacon’s trademark sense of isolation and claustrophobia, with the walls seemingly closing in on the subject of the image. The subjects arms appear to be bound, almost as if they were in a straightjacket, conveying a sense of helplessness.
