I have been an admirer of Munch, the German expressionists, abstract expressionism (particularly de Kooning). That said, I find the work of Francis Bacon pretty disgusting and off putting. I can’t understand what people find in his small distorted figures floating in huge fields of plain dirty colors and his often use of straight lines with the use of a ruler. Or his distorted smaller pieces that do a disservice to cubism. If this is “neo expressionism”, I’d take “old expressionism” any time.
