The Gilded Gutter Life of Francis Bacon

The Gilded Gutter Life of Francis Bacon
Library Shelf Location 18.BACO
Publication Date 1994
Description The writer Daniel Farson was a friend and confidant of Francis Bacon for more than 40 years. In this biography of the artist he tells the story of bohemian lifestyle, of love and loss, of multiple suicides, of marathon drinking sessions, and of a sex life so extraordinary that Bacon would allow the book to be published only after his death. Despite his great wealth, Bacon never ceased to live his life on the edge - or, as he put it, "as close to my nervous system as I possibly can".
