Descriere

Forms of feeling: The human body in distress Largely self-taught as an artist, Francis Bacon (1909-1992)developed a unique ability to transform interior and unconscious impulses into figurative forms and intensely claustrophobic compositions.

With flailing limbs, hollow voids, and tumurous growths, hisgripping, often grotesque, portraitsare as much reflections on the trials and the traumas of the human condition as they are character studies.

These haunting forms were also among the first in art history to depictovertly homosexual themes.This book introduces Bacon's erotic, unsettling, unforgettable oeuvre, a transformative body of work often emulated, much analysed, and above allfelt.
