One off documentary A Brush With Violence, which airs on Saturday 28 January on BBC Two, is a profile of Francis Bacon considered to be the loudest, rudest, drunkest and most sought-after British artist of the 20th century.

Twenty-five years after his death his canvases regularly exceed tens of millions at auction. Bacon’s appeal is rooted in his notoriety: a candid image he presented of himself as Roaring Boy, Lord of Misrule, and Conveyor of Artistic Violence.

This was true enough, but only part of the truth. He carefully cultivated the façade, protecting the complex and haunted man behind the myth. In this compelling film those who knew him speak freely, some for the first time, to reveal the many mysteries of Francis Bacon.

Contributors include John Richardson, Marianne Faithfull, Terence Stamp, Grey Gowrie, Maggi Hambling and Damien Hirst.

Francis Bacon: A Brush With Violence airs on Saturday 28 January 2017 on BBC Two.
