At seventy the artist appears ageless, not a day older than in his first self-portrait, painted in 1956. Bacon had begun to make close-up portraits in 1961, filling canvases measuring about a square foot with heads slightly smaller than life-size. Bacon has said "art is completely a game by which man distracts himself," and "the artist must really deepen the game in order to be worth anything at all.
