Library Shelf Location 18.BACO
Publication Date 2006
Description Francis Bacon (1909-1992) was renowned for his dramatic depictions of the human form; he portrayed the ordeal of the vulnerable, defencelessly exposed body like no other artist of his generation. At the centre of this volume are about sixty of Bacon's disturbing yet captivating studies of the human figure, encompassing works from the late 1940s until his death. Texts by a range of experts on the artist offer new insights into these radical and often discomfiting images, so brilliantly reproduced on the pages of this book.
