The World
The Francis Bacon exhibit at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art serves up depictions of carcasses, sex, and a psychologically tortured pope. They're brutal, but impossible to ignore. Painter Jenny Saville explains why younger artists are so influenced by Bacon, and how he helped save painting from irrelevance. Produced by Sarah Lilley.
