Francis Bacon Describes His Painting Process

Kyle Chayka highlights an interesting documentary film on the painter Francis Bacon in which Bacon "talks through one of his most iconic works [Painting, 1946] and explains how he makes paintings. The documentary features a series of conversations between Bacon and interviewer Melvyn Bragg."  Bacon also speaks about Ingres and there is an interlude that splices Bacon's screaming figures with similar imagery from films."
