9780300151213: Francis Bacon in the 1950s

From the screaming heads and snarling chimpanzees of the late 1940s to the anonymous figures trapped in tortured isolation some ten years later, during one crucial decade British artist Francis Bacon created many of the most central and memorable images of his entire career. The artist enters the decade of the 1950s in search of himself and his true subject; he finishes ten years later having completed some of his great masterpieces and having acquired technical mastery over one of the most disturbing and revealing visions of the 20th century.
This book brings both Bacon the man and Bacon the painter vividly to life, focusing for the first time on this key period in his development. Michael Peppiatt, the leading authority on Bacon and a close friend of the artist for thirty years, reveals essential keys to understanding Bacon's mysterious and subversive art. The book presents and assesses a wide range of paintings (many of them rarely seen before) representing all of Bacon's major themes during the 1950s. Also included is an account of the artist's life in the 1950s.

About the Author:

Formerly editor and publisher of Art International, Michael Peppiatt is an independent art historian and exhibition curator living between London and Paris. His previous books include Alberto Giacometti in Postwar Paris, published by Yale University Press. His 1996 biography of Francis Bacon, Francis Bacon: Anatomy of an Enigma, is considered the definitive account of Bacon's life and work and was chosen as a New York Times Book of the Year.

Review:

"'Peppiatt's essay is a profound meditation on the painter's psychology and motivation; one of the best things ever written on Bacon.' Martin Gayord, The Sunday Telegraph 'To accompany UEA's excellent show Yale has published a substantial and rather beautiful volume.' The Spectator 'Francis Bacon in the 1950s forms a kind of postscript to Peppiatt's 1996 biography, reverting to the period just before his own acquaintance with the artist began... This tale of life lived on the edge - with its interwoven strand of steely artistic determination, makes for flavoursome reading. Peppiatt portrays his old friend with easy authority.' Julian Bell, New York Review of Books"
