From Library Journal:

Violence to the human figure is central to the imagery of Francis Bacon, in the ``tightrope walk he enacts between ab straction and figuration.'' Many of these figures are caged, rent apart, or closer to the skeleton than the skin. The authors suggest some aesthetic and philosophical sources. But Bacon him self is an artist who eschews verbal ex planations of his work, as well as any personal commentary on his lifestyle or history. Therefore, what is left is little text and a wide selection of full-color plates. The occasion of this book was Bacon's second show at the Tate Gal lery in London. This book follows a 1983 deluxe ($75) Rizzoli volume, Mi chel Leiris's Francis Bacon: full face and in profile ( LJ 12/1/83). The two books are very similar; either would suffice, both are equally recommended for comprehensive modern art collec tions. Hara L. Seltzer, NYPL
