Thanks for alerting me to this exhibition. I will try to get to NYC before it ends.

I had the opportunity to see this show over the weekend, and I have to say it sparked my interest in Francis Bacon. His style is unique and the haunting quality of his works draws you in. I will definitely be recommending this show on my twitter (ArtNY).
