Francis Bacon had his first scandalous successes in the mid 1940s, with pictures full of violence and brutality. They highlight the human figure, which seems to be exposed to the most terrible physical tortures and mutilation. Bacon preferably displayed disfigured and decrepit bodies, which, however, simultaneously radiate vitality and aggressiveness.
Although in Seated Figure the deformation of reality may have been pushed to the limit, the painting does not reflect an ideal world: enclosed within a narrow black case, a man in street clothes appears to be lashing about desperately. It cannot be overlooked that his face and hands are severely injured, if not maimed. In Bacon's art, disformation and distortion are carried as far as the dissolution of form and motif. His works are essentially metaphors of life based on the dialectics of growing and perishing, of life and death.
