Synopsis: An exploration of the interplay between photography and painting in the work of Francis Bacon. Francis Bacon famously found inspiration in photographs, film stills, and mass-media imagery. This book draws on a broad range of source images and documents, many hitherto unknown, to reveal how these media informed some of Bacon's most important paintings and helped to trigger significant turning points in his stylistic development. Martin Harrison locates Bacon's work in a tradition of artists making use of mechanical reproductions, including Picasso and Walter Sickert. Harrison also reviews Bacon's painting in the context of key influences: film directors such as Sergei Eisenstein, photographers such as Eadweard Muybridge and John Deakin, and masters such as Velazquez, Poussin, and Rodin. In addition, Bacon's work is considered in the context of his contemporaries, including Lucian Freud, Mark Rothko, Graham Sutherland, and Patrick Heron. Analysis of elements of Bacon's biography and psychology leads to some startling and original insights into the man and the unique iconography of his art. With the aid of over 260 superb illustrations and the advantage of privileged access to unpublished material from the artist's archives, this is a book that addresses important questions about Bacon's practice and that, in reassessing key paintings, sheds new light on his life and work. 265 illustrations in color and duotone.

About the Author: Martin Harrison is the author of In Camera: Francis Bacon and is the editor of the forthcoming Francis Bacon Catalogue Raisonne, a project with which Rebecca Daniels is also closely involved. They live in England.

Book Description -Thames & Hudson -, 2005. First edition 2005. 256 pages. Illustrated in colour and black and white. Cloth, a little bumped at the head of the spine. Very good in dustjacket with small closed tear to the rear. With the aid of over 250 source images and documents, many hitherto unknown, this book reveals how photography, film, mass-media imagery and other sources informed Bacons painting and, in particular, how lens-based images, as he put it, helped to trigger the most significant turning-point in his stylistic development. Key influences, including the masters Velázquez, Poussin and Rodin, the photographer Eadweard Muybridge and the film director Sergei Eisenstein, are discussed. So too are the precedents set by other artists working in the tradition of making use of mechanical reproductions artists including Picasso and Sickert. Bacons work is also viewed in the context of his contemporaries, such as Lucian Freud, Mark Rothko, Graham Sutherland and Patrick Heron. In addition, analysis of elements of Bacons biography and psychology leads to some startling and original insights into the man and the unique iconography of his art.This is a book that addresses important questions about Bacons painting practice and sheds new light on his life and work.
