Francis Bacon: Wrestling with unknown faith

The Church Times has just published an interesting review of Crucifixions: Francis Bacon at St Stephen Walbrook in which Nicholas Cranfield sagely remarks that:

"As so often, artists reveal more of themselves in drawings than in other media; the current Lenten hang at St Stephen Walbrook, in the City of London, will come as a shock to those who think that they know their Bacon, and as a surprise to those who want to find a space for their prayer and devotions away from the harsh savagery of the Square Mile ...

The graphics themselves show Bacon wrestling with the unknown faith that for some lies behind such images."
