Francis Bacon s work has a strength and vitality that has led to his position as one of the greatest twentieth century artists. The violent intensity with which his paintings give expression to the existential angst of his fellow human beings is virtually without parallel in the history of the art. Bacon s work (1909 -1992) undoubtedly includes some of the most extraordinary and powerful paintings in modern art, reflecting the isolation and terror of the human condition, conveyed by the distortion of features and the nude body.
As Profesor Hunter write in his key introductory essay what has become increasingly clear with the test of time, as Bacon enters his eighties, is the clarity, durability, and powerful authority of his visual discourse.
This concise monograph is an in depth survey on the whole career of the British artist.
