BEAUTY: Man and Art--George Dyer by Francis Bacon
Francis Bacon's toxic, tragic relationship with his unstable alcoholic lover George Dyer is legendary. It is even portrayed on film by Derek Jacobi as Bacon and Daniel Craig as Dyer in "Love Is The Devil." George was a very handsome man, and Bacon painted him many times, even after Dyer's suicide in 1971.
