In comparison with the large self-portraits Bacon had painted in 1981, this impresive painting, basically a psychological study, is cooler in overall tone and Bacon portrays himself as rather withdrawn, hands anxiously clasped around his knee, his face half erased. Francis Bacon: Catalogue Raisonné, 2016, p. 1244.
