Interesting info about Francis Bacon

A genre of paintings that is also identified with Francis Bacon is those that follow the motif of the screaming mouth. Story has it that Bacon was moved by the scene in silent film The Battleship Potemkim, where the nurse in the Odessa Steps scenes is screaming in panic. Bacon kept a still close-up photograph of the screaming nurse and kept it in his studio. Some of his works, such as The restlessness of human existence and Head VI, depict people with their mouths open.
