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.
