"As [Francis Bacon's] palette brightened form the 1960s on, and as broader areas of pure color set off his smeary, rubbery, cartoonish figures, he started to look more like a painter of mordant comedy than existential tragedy. . . Often his paintings are like much-enlarged panels from an unusually stylish graphic novel."
- THE NEW YORK TIMES
"I was blown away by how fresh, shocking, and incredibly beautiful the paintings are. . . Perhaps those who found Bacon's early work too graphic and too 'fleshy' will be drawn in by the sheer beauty of his paintings as well as by what some might perceive as a more palatable sensibility. These later paintings convery both a technical mastery and the self-reflectiveness of an artist who had endured a new phase of maturity."
