About the Triptych Painting
Francis Bacon used the format of the triptych throughout his career. The figure in this painting is probably his lover male John Edwards. In the first panel the figure is struggling on the toilet, bent over in pain. The central panel shows the figure in a more contemplative pose, perhaps regretting the excess alcohol consumed. The dark shadows coming from the doorway are menacing, and also play an important part in the overall composition of the painting. In the third panel the figure is bent over and vomitting in the sink.

"My painting is a representation of life, my own life above all, which has been very difficult. So perhaps my painting is very violent, but this is natural to me." Francis Bacon Quote
