Without any claim to resolve or judge, this paper proposes itself as a particular analysis about what can be considered one of the most important aspect of Francis Bacon?s artistic work: The study of the ?Figure?. The structure, anything but linear of this research, evokes a very important aspect about the thought and the lifestyle of the artist: the dynamic of accumulation. In the thematic- stylistic analysis of the work as in the more ?intimate? observation of Bacon?s life, the conduction of this research in a rhizomatic form, proposes herself as a pure investigation, that acts with centrifuge force around the ?figure? element, starting and final unicum of all his artistic production and, then, of his artistic research. In conclusion, the analysis effort here proposed, concentrates on an objective reception, explanation and organization of the philosophical- critical evaluations elaborated on the work and life of the artist Francis Bacon.
