9780099307815: The Gilded Gutter Life Of Francis Bacon: The Authorized Biography

Widely regarded as the best British painter since Turner, very little is known about Francis Bacon's life. In this, the first-ever book to be written about him, Daniel Farson, friend and confidant to Bacon for over forty years, gives a highly personal, first-hand account of the man as he knew him. From his sexual adventures to his rise from obscurity to international fame, Farson gives us unique insight into Bacon's genius.

Review:

"The most fascinatingly provocative, intimate study of an artist I have ever read" (Patrick Skene Catling Evening Standard)

"It preserves precisely the aspects of Bacon that will be hardest for scholarly researchers to capture... no-one can convey better than Farson the fun of Bacon's company and the louche adventures of the Soho underworld" (Lynn Barber Independent on Sunday)

"Positively Runyonesque...well-written, entertaining, and above all, thought-provoking" (David Mellor Daily Telegraph)

"Startlingly revealing" ( Times Literary Supplement)

Book Description:

Reissue of a classic work about one of Britain's greatest painters.
