"In 1949 Francis Bacon found his subject - the human body - and from then on it remained his principal theme. But he did not paint from life. Instead he appropriated images from the mass media that he manipulated into his 'studies'. His paintings bore witness to the shattered psychology of the time and shot him to a prominence that hardly diminished over the next fifty years, and that continues to rise." "This book presents many of the 'working documents' about which Bacon was entirely secretive but which, it emerges, were integral to his creative process. Culled from thousands of pieces of original material found in his studio, including newspapers, magazines, books and photographs, these items have each been exhaustively and minutely researched, providing for the first time comprehensive details of the artist's sources. This base material - folded, torn, clipped and spattered with paint - underwent an alchemical transformation frond mundane matter into new images." "Nearly all previously unseen, these visually thrilling documents demonstrate Bacon's tactile, visceral relationship with his sources, and his unerring eye for seeking out visual stimulation in the most unexpected places. His paintings emerged from a dialogue between great art of the past and photographic imagery of the present: and, as a painter of the transient, his work also shared the pulse and flicker of his other significant inspiration, early cinema. His fascination with medium itself - the texture of paint, the quality of newsprint, the techniques of mechanical reproduction of both the still and moving image - throws light on the nature of Bacon's points of contact with the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET.

Francis Bacon, a self-taught painter, became one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. Here he speaks openly to his close friend Michel Archimbaud who sets out to discover the man behind the paintings. His searching questions shed a new light on Bacon's work in spite of his claim that he finds it impossible to talk about his painting. He talks candidly about his childhood, his relationship with his father, his friends and the influences which have shaped his art. The discussion is wide-ranging, touching on painting, literature and music. The interviews are punctuated with Bacon's revealing and sometimes disparaging remarks about a whole host of artists including amongst others Rubens, Blake, Monet, Cezanne, Picasso, Balthus, Giacometti, Shakespeare, Baudelaire, Wagner, Debussy and Schonberg. These interviews, conducted in French, took place in Bacon's studio between October 1991 and April 1992. They were to continue in Paris following Bacon's trip to Madrid, but he died in Madrid on 28 April 1992. As such these conversations can be seen as his last recorded thoughts.

One of the most elusive and enigmatic creative geniuses of modern times, Francis Bacon was a man of endless contradictions and facets. In this invaluable book Michael Peppiatt, a major art critic and close friend of Bacon’s, offers an entertaining and uniquely well-informed portrait of this complex artist. Peppiatt’s collection of interviews and essays spans more than forty years—from 1963, when the two men met, to 2007, when Peppiatt wrote an essay explaining Bacon’s passionate involvement with Van Gogh. The pieces in between include discussions of Bacon’s working methods and techniques, his unlikely relationship with his London dealer, his attitude toward Christian belief and classical myth, and his defining friendship with the eminent French writer Michel Leiris. Peppiatt also provides fascinating anecdotes about the artist’s early life, his intimate relationships, and his connections with the artists who were his contemporaries and friends. In addition, among the interviews reproduced for the book are new transcripts of two interviews presenting previously omitted material that brings out many little-known aspects of Bacon’s presence and personality.
