About this artwork

Back in 1971, a German-Jewish photographer named Francis Goodman took a series of photos of the famous artist Francis Bacon. Goodman took a dozen shots depicting Bacon in his studio, sitting awkwardly on the edge of his seat. This mirrors the distorted figures seen in Bacon's abstract artwork. Each purchase contributes to the operations of the National Portrait Gallery.

About the artist

Born in London as Francis Julian Gutmann in 1913, 'Franzie' spent his childhood in Munich from 1919, and began dabbling in photography with a Box Brownie camera. In 1931, he moved back to London and by 1938, had anglicised his last name. At 18, Franzie apprenticed himself to Shaw Wildman, a fashion and advertising photographer, and subsequently worked alongside Peter Rose Pulham, whose Berkeley Square studio he eventually took over. Early on, his fashion photos graced the pages of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, and his high society portraits were featured in The Sketch. Tragically, much of his work from the 1930s got lost during World War II, but some still remain scattered in photo magazines, annuals and press copies.
