Synopsis:

This landmark publishing event presents the entire oeuvre of Bacon’s paintings for the first time in a deluxe five-volume boxed set

Editor Martin Harrison, following his appointment by the Estate of Francis Bacon, has devoted over a decade to the creation of this magnificent publication, the first-ever complete catalogue raisonné of the work of the great British painter. Including many previously unpublished paintings, this five-volume set allows Bacon’s oeuvre to be seen and assessed in its entirety for the first time, with all works reproduced in full color. The only previous Bacon catalogue raisonné was published in 1964, gathering only 37% of Bacon’s ultimate oeuvre, and featuring only 27 color reproductions. Only about half of the 584 paintings that survive are accessible to the public in exhibitions and publications; with Francis Bacon: Catalogue Raisonné, the painter’s entire oeuvre can be seen and assessed for the first time.

The catalogue, containing around 800 illustrations across five clothbound, hardcover volumes, includes three books comprising the study of Bacon’s entire working history, which are bookended by two further volumes: the first including an introduction, chronology and an indispensible index and users’ guide, and the second a catalogue of Bacon’s sketches with an illustrated bibliography. Beautifully produced and printed, the five volumes of Francis Bacon: Catalogue Raisonné are boxed within a handsome cloth slipcase.

About the Author:

Francis Bacon (1909–92) is widely regarded as Britain’s greatest modern painter. Drawing on low-art sources, including photographs torn from magazines and imagery from films, coupled with a keen awareness of the rich historical tradition of painting stretching back to the Renaissance, Bacon developed a way of portraying the human body which was unique. His mastery of the medium of paint was recognized early. By 1946, the critic Kenneth Clark felt able to state simply: ‘Francis Bacon has genius’.” ­––Francis Bacon (Tate Publishing, 2008) 

Since 1970, Martin Harrison has published on 19­th and 20­th century art and photography and curated exhibitions in the UK (Victoria & Albert Museum; National Portrait Gallery; Ashmolean Museum), Italy, the USA and Mexico. He co-curated the Bacon exhibition at the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Dusseldorf in 2006, and Francis Bacon / Henry Moore: Flesh and Bone, The Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, 2013. His first publication on Francis Bacon was Points of Reference (Faggionato Fine Art, 1999), while other publications on the subject include In Camera: Francis Bacon – Photography, Film and the Practice of Painting, (Thames & Hudson, 2005) and Francis Bacon: Incunabula, with Rebecca Daniels, (Thames & Hudson, 2008). In 2009 he edited Francis Bacon – New Studies: Centenary Essays, a collection of nine original essays to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the artist.

Book Description The Estate of Francis Bacon 2016. First edition., London, 2016. Condition: As New. 5 volumes, cloth-bound hardbacks housed in matching slipcase. 104, 430, 444, 424, 136 pages. 800 colour illustrations. 18kg. English. Fine; as new, sealed in custom shipping carton. A landmark publication and essential reference for dealers, scholars and collectors of Bacon. 'Francis Bacon: Catalogue Raisonne is a landmark publishing event that presents the entire oeuvre of Bacon's paintings for the first time and includes over 100 previously unpublished works. The impeccably produced five-volume, slipcased publication, containing each of Bacon's 584 paintings, has been edited by Martin Harrison. An ambitious and painstaking project that has been ten years in the making, this seminal visual document eclipses in scope any previous publication on the artist and will have a profound effect on the perception of his work. Containing around 800 illustrations across 1,538 pages within five cloth-bound hardcover volumes, the three volumes that make up the study of Bacon's entire painting oeuvre are bookended by two further volumes: the former including an introduction and a chronology, and the latter a catalogue of Bacon's sketches, an index, and an illustrated bibliography compiled by Krzysztof Cieszkowski.' (from the publisher's description). In addition to the 584 paintings, the catalogue will contain illuminating supporting material. This includes sketches by Bacon, photographs of early states of paintings, images of Bacon's furniture, hand-written notes by the artist, photographs of Bacon, his family and circle, and fascinating x-ray and microscope photography of his paintings.' (from the publisher's description). Beaux Books specialises in vintage, collectable and luxury books on art, design, fashion and style. All our books are in stock unless otherwise stated.
