Book Summary

This volume offers an intimate study of Francis Bacon, one of Britain's foremost artists.  Including his work of 1987, it reveals his unique oeuvre; his color-drenched canvases, often disturbing while stimulating, are among the most powerful painting in contemporary art.

Bacon's series of portraits and self-portraits, intense triptychs, weirdly yet terrifying variations on Velazquez's Pope Innocent X, the painfully moving Crucifixions and the enigmatic figure studies are here reproduced in full color.
