Bacon

20
Disponibilità: marzo 23, 2024

Un incontro breve e avvincente con Francis Bacon, uno dei pittori più individuali, potenti e stravolgenti del XX secolo. Diventato famoso nel periodo successivo alla Seconda Guerra Mondiale, Bacon sviluppò una forma figurativa unica, distorta, smembrata e contorta dall'intenso contenuto emotivo.

Forms of Feeling

The human body in distress

Largely self-taught as an artist, Francis Bacon (1909–1992) developed a unique ability to transform interior and unconscious impulses into figurative forms and intensely claustrophobic compositions.

Emerging into notoriety in the period following World War II, Bacon took the human body as his nominal subject, but a subject ravaged, distorted, and dismembered so as to writhe with intense emotional content. With flailing limbs, hollow voids, and tumurous growths, his gripping, often grotesque, portraits are as much reflections on the trials and the traumas of the human condition as they are character studies. These haunting forms were also among the first in art history to depict overtly homosexual themes.
L'autore

Luigi Ficacci studied art history in Rome under Giulio Carlo Argan. For many years, he was curator at the Istituto Nazionale per la Grafica in Rome and general museum director (Soprintendente ai Beni Culturali) in Bologna and in Lucca. He also lectured at various Italian universities. Until 2021, he was director of the Central Institute for Restoration (Istituto centrale per il restauro) in Rome. The focal points of his research work are the issues raised by 17th and 18th century and contemporary Italian and European art.
