Francis Bacon retrospective at the Met

Abstract of article here. The writer admits at the outset that Bacon is his least favorite painter of the 20th Century. I like him myself. (And he was gay.) The writer prefers Bacon's Abstract Expressionist contemporaries over him, but Abstract Expressionism (which I like) turned out to be a dead end (about which I'm glad). (I can't imagine artists never painting "real" things again.) (And they did.)
