UnMasterclass 7

"You see, painting has now become, or all art has now become completely a game, by which man distracts himself. What is fascinating actually is, that it's going to become much more difficult for the artist, because he must really deepen the game to become any good at all."
Francis Bacon

"You could say that I have no inspiration, that I only need to paint."
Francis Bacon

Here at UnMasterclass we are not really into deepening our game and inspiration is often in short supply, which is perhaps goes some way as to explaining why the paintings come out as they do. One of the big guns of the 20th Century comes under the UnMasterclass watchful eye this week and ends up not looking too far away from the postcard the copy was painted from and a million light years away from the Bacon original. So have a look at the latest UnMasterclass here - - and then pop along to good old Tate Britain to goggle at the original.
