Don't worry, dear Pamela, I'll do my scientific best to command your fleet

I keep coming back to the painting
'Blood on the Pavement' (Bacon 1988)
It's kinda sparse and minimal in comparison
to most of his work, but this one has
something rather nihilistic? (?) about it..
(even more so than most that is..)

I recommend a good hard shot of vodka tonic,
a bag of Maltesers & 'Superstar' by Sonic Youth
on repeat whilst viewing this one.


'Blood on the Pavement'
c.1988, oil on canvas. 198 x 147.5
Private Collection.


  1. I love this painting by Bacon.
    Icy cool, rust, the way it is divided up. I love how minimal and calm this piece is, yet it quietly punches me in the gut.

  2. It is a play between his dismissal of 'abstract' and his love of visceral, an unusual painting for him isn't it?

  3. Yes, very unusual, I would have never known it was his unless you told me.
    I had never seen it before, but I am so glad I have now. Thank you.

  4. Got the vodka, got the Superstar, have to find a replacement for the maltesers this painting keeps on calling me back and since I can't see it in person this will do :)

  5. This was a really excellent idea, Factory Supervisor.

  6. Lucky for me I get to see this and many more of Bacon's work this Saturday when I take my adventure into London.. There are many of his works on display I haven't seen before..

    Hope the replacement chocolate worked just as well for you Heather.
    (no Maltesers where you live??)

    I knew that Megan would like the divides in this one and it's impact.

    Wrenna, you are, of course,
    very welcome.
