This biography of British painter Francis Bacon (1909-1992) focuses on his relationship with his lover, George Dyer, a former small time crook. In the 1960's, Bacon surprises a burglar and invites him into his life. The burglar, Dyer, who is 30 years Bacon's junior, accepts. Bacon finds Dyer's amorality and innocence attractive, introducing him to his Soho pals.
