Based on conversations with the artist which extended over several years, John Russell's original study reveals much about Bacon the man and Bacon the artist in a way that has never been surpassed. On Bacon's death in 1992, the unique vision and accomplishment of one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century could be appreciated in their totality. In this edition, Russell does just that, as well as discussing Bacon's later work. Bacon's intentions and his achievements, both frequently misunderstood, are here set in perspective.

Review:

'If you are moved and interested by the work of Francis Bacon, then this book is essential; if, on a general level, you are intrigued by how and why a considerable artist creates his own individual visions, then this book is again essential' - Arts Review
