- Purchased from the artist through the Hanover Gallery, London by Eric Hall, 1952.
Here we see Francis Bacon’s use of animals to evoke aggression, vulnerability or both. The image of the dog is derived from Edward Muybridge's time-lapse photographs of animals in motion. Bacon smeared the paint to suggest what seems to be demented movement.
