. Phaidon Focus is a brand new series that offers accessible, up-to-date, authoritative, enjoyable andthought-provoking books on internationally renowned modern masters. Written by experts in their field, each of these lively and beautifully illustrated books, covers the fullspan of the artist's work, exploring its origins, development, style and themes. Stimulating and a pleasure to read, each book consists of a chronological essay accompanied by'Focus' sections that delve into specific themes and important groups of work, and ends with a shortchronology and a bibliography. These compact and affordable hardback books are the perfect introductions to the artists, essentialreading for students and rewarding for anyone curious about art. The art of Francis Bacon (1909-1992) epitomizes the angst at the heart of the modern human condition. His dramatic images of screaming figures and distorted anatomies are painted with a richly gestural technique, alluding to such Old Masters as Titian, Velázquez and Rembrandt. Displaying repressed and raw emotion, his body of work includes portraits of Lucian Freud and John Deakin.

Recenzii

'concise yet spirited introduction ... plenty of colour plates make it brilliantly useful as a reference tool' The Sunday Telegraph 'Eschewing the heavyweight doorstop format of many art books, these beautiful and compact Phaidon Focus artist monographs are small and slick, and refreshingly affordable. ...designed by Julia Hasting, the Zurich-based design director at Phaidon Press, who manages to create a clean, fresh look that - as art book design should - put the artists' work centre stage ...Coated in a translucent grey plastic with a clear window, the book's pared back approach continues with clean, black typography on a white background. Never cluttered, but resolutely in-depth, the series manages to condense some of the 20th century's most famous artists' work into small, but by no means diminutive introductions.' DesignWeek.co.uk 'beautifully designed ... the most iconic artists of the modern day ... bring you the essentials in a concise manner', Its Nice That 'Phaidon are adept at packaging up key artists and movements in contemporary art, ensuring each generation has a familiar and forward-thinking way of immersing itself in visual culture. The newest tranche of introductory monographs is Phaidon Focus. With nearly 30 titles in the works, the Focus series is an extended primer, a handsome hardback designed to provide an in-depth overview of an artist's life, plus a more concentrated focus on key works from the artist's career to date.' Wallpaper,com 'amazing .. an essential addition to any art lover's collection' Grazia
