Drawings 'attributed' to Francis Bacon (UPDATE).
I received an interesting comment on a post I made back in 2010 (Drawings 'attributed' to Francis Bacon) when I was in
Berlin (not sure about his statement equating illustration with a
'literal likeness', though). The large pastels currently being offered
in London look pretty bad, but were not part of the show I saw. Bacon
really attacked the surface of the canvas with his brushes and I don't
think it's a leap to see a similarity in some of the sweeping graphite
gestures in the drawings.
