He told critics that his usual practice with triptychs was to begin with the left panel and work across. Typically he completed each frame before beginning the next. As the work as a whole progressed, he would sometimes return to an earlier panel to make revisions, though this practice was generally carried out late in the overall work's completion.source

During the late s and s, Bacon worked on several series, such as his screaming heads, popes, animals in prey and men in blue suits. The use of reworked and revisited imagery transferred into regular use of a triptych format in the early s. Bacon began his first large triptych Three Studies for a Crucifixion in February Although he often completed a major canvas in a day, this work was not finished until the following March.
In , the art critic David Sylvester categorised Bacon's large triptychs into three groupings: 18 showing a dramatic or erotic event, six showing three full-length seated portraits, and four containing single nude figures.

Five show a biomorph , [a 1] 4 contain still lives. Bacon was highly self-critical and destroyed a great many canvases. As well as being Bacon's first large format triptych, Three Studies for a Crucifixion introduced the later and often repeated visual motif a human body turned inside out. This idea was drawn from a long tradition in art history, and was influenced strongly by Rembrandt 's Side of beef and Chaim Soutine 's Carcass of Beef.

After Bacon's focus generally narrowed, and he became obsessed with close-up portraiture. On the opening day of his first Tate retrospective, he received word that his former lover Peter Lacey had died; news that had a devastating impact on him personally, and led him to produce his first triptych in the style to his heads of the mids, which had brought him to wider attention. The Study for Three Heads opened a dramatically new arena for the artist and was followed by similar scaled triptychs for a series of works which can loosely be seen to be painted after his " Colony Room associates, including Dyer, Lucian Freud for a period , Muriel Belcher and Henrietta Moraes.
From the s, as the artist himself approached later life, associates and drinking friends began to die, lending many of the portraits an added urgency and poignancy. In Triptych Inspired by T. Eliot 's poem " Sweeney Agonistes " , Bacon shows a couple erotically entwined in the right-hand panel, while a clothed male figure stands looking at them. The left-hand panel shows another couple, in full view, lying in Post-coital tristesse.
Here Bacon is looking at the notion of voyeurism being an ideal prelude to participation; a notion held by his former lover Peter Lacy. Bacon's triptychs show ten separate couples on beds, of which eight are erotically interacting, while in two others figures are shown sleeping side by side. Two days before the opening of Bacon's retrospective at the Grand Palais , George Dyer, his former lover and principal model for the past seven years, took his own life in the hotel room they were sharing.
During the following three years he painted many images of Dyer, including the series of three "Black triptychs" or "Black paintings" which have come to be seen as among his best work. They are so named because they share common black backgrounds emblematic of death or mourning. A number of characteristics bind the "Black triptychs" together. The form of a monochromatically rendered doorway features centrally in all, and each is framed by flat and shallow walls. Bacon's work from the s has been described by the art critic Hugh Davies as the "frenzied momentum of a struggle against death".

He admitted during a interview that he thought the most difficult aspect of aging was "losing your friends". This was a bleak period in his life, and though he was to live for another seventeen years, he felt that his life was almost over, "and all the people I've loved are dead".
