Bacon was brilliant. There was a great show the AGO here in Toronto a couple of years back.

I'm a fan, so will watch when I have the time. I must express admiration for the pun in the title.

There is an art gallery in Dublin that has preserved his infamously messy and cluttered studio. They literally moved every piece of junk to a new room of the same dimensions and meticulously placed them in the same arrangement. They even kept the dust.

Oh yeah, didn't notice that until you pointed it out.
