This fascinating and beautifully illustrated book on the work of Francis Bacon, one of the 20th century s greatest painters, takes an in-depth look at his trademark motif of figures imprisoned within ghostly frames. Arguably one of the most influential and original painters of the 20th century, Francis Bacon painted haunting portraits that employed themes of crucifixion, torment, and isolation. Incorporating the insights of The Logic of Sensation, French philosopher Gilles Deleuze s seminal criticism of Bacon s work, this volume highlights Bacon s approach to space as one of the defining forces of his work. By organizing the spatial and dramatic structure of his compositions with barely visible cubic or elliptical cages, his figures become trapped in a kind of invisible room. This sense of confinement creates a direct, unsettling impression on the viewer, and further emphasizes the painter s dark vision. This book features stunning reproductions of 40 large-scale paintings, including Study for a Portrait (1952), Chimpanzee (1955), Three Studies of the Male Back (1970), and Sand Dune (1983) as well as a selection of rarely exhibited works on paper. This book also contains a series of essays that explore the range of variation in Bacon s use of isolating constructions over a period of nearly 50 years, as well as the nature of his painting technique and compositions.
The book you are holding is a deep exploration of the life and work of one of the biggest painters of the 20th century. Francis Bacon was born in Ireland but due to his attitude to life and especially painting he managed to influence artists all over the world. His work is filled with violence, anxiety, horror and depression which stemmed in the world wars. It is also reflected in the way he used colours, brushstrokes and motifs. Besides Francis Bacon, the book introduces artistic movements in the 20th century and historical, social and cultural background of the period.
The art of Francis Bacon epitomises the angst at the heart of the modern human condition. His dramatic images of screaming figures and distorted anatomies are painted with a richly gestural technique, alluding to such old masters as Titian, Velazquez and Rembrandt. Displaying repressed and raw emotion, his body of work includes portraits of Lucian Freud and John Deakin.

Without any claim to resolve or judge, this paper proposes itself as a particular analysis about what can be considered one of the most important aspect of Francis Bacon’s artistic work: The study of the “Figure”. The structure, anything but linear of this research, evokes a very important aspect about the thought and the lifestyle of the artist: the dynamic of accumulation. In the thematic- stylistic analysis of the work as in the more “intimate” observation of Bacon’s life, the conduction of this research in a rhizomatic form, proposes herself as a pure investigation, that acts with centrifuge force around the “figure” element, starting and final unicum of all his artistic production and, then, of his artistic research. In conclusion, the analysis effort here proposed, concentrates on an objective reception, explanation and organization of the philosophical- critical evaluations elaborated on the work and life of the artist Francis Bacon.
