Summary:
Dramatic depictions of human forms - writhing painfully, dissolving, wrestling or engulfing one another, seated or in motion - are ubiquitous in the work of Francis Bacon (1909-1992). He portrayed the ordeal of the vulnerable, defencelessly exposed body like no other artist of his generation. At the centre of this book are about sixty of Bacon's disturbing yet captivating studies of the human figure. -- Dust Jacket.
