Deep beneath the surfaces of things


US$ 9.99

Francis Bacon (1909-1992) possessed the rare ability to transform unconscious compulsions into figurative, human-like forms that seem to evoke the raw emotions that bore them. Mixing realism and abstraction, Bacon delves deep beneath the surfaces of things, opening up the human body to reveal the chaos that lies within and struggling with all that is inexplicable. Erotic and grotesquely beautiful is the work of this legendary painter whose haunting, distorted figures have inspired entire generations of painters who seek to emulate his highly original style.
  • "Leading purveyor of fine art books, TASCHEN, has published Bacon, an account on the artist's life and creative dynasty. Contextualizing essays accompany the 100-plus images, with accounts on his personal life, creative approach and inspirations such that readers can truly start to understand the master and his works."
