Illustration from Linda C. Cain and Susan Rosenbaum's "Blast Off" (1973) by Leo and Diane Dillon references Francis Bacon's Study for a Bullfight no. 1 (1969)?

b)  References Francis Bacon's Study for a Bullfight no. 1 (1969)

Here I am making comparisons that look as if I'm trying to make out that this children's book contains part of a secret plan for a demented science fiction horror.
