Francis Bacon by Hugh Marlais Davies( Book )

16 editions published between 1978 and 1986 in 3 languages and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With their searing colors and dramatically contorted figures, the paintings of Francis Bacon compel attention. Unlike most painters of his generation, who preferred to investigate the rigors of abstraction, the 75-year-old Bacon has devoted his skills to portraying the human body. The power and magnitude of his life's work are vividly conveyed by this thorough evaluation written by Hugh Davies, director of the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art, and art historian Sally Yard. Born in Dublin, as a teenager Bacon moved to London, where he worked as an interior designer and taught himself to paint. Responding to influences as diverse as Michelangelo and the photographer Muybridge, he has created a motion-filled style uniquely his own. Fascinated by the challenge of capturing what he calls "the mysteries of appearance," Bacon confronts us with emotional images that demand an emotional response."--Publisher's description
Blurring the boundaries : installation art, 1969-1996 by Hugh Marlais Davies( Book )

23 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and German and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Far from being the latest movement or a new development in contemporary art, installation art, one could argue, is only the most recent manifestation of the oldest tradition in art, going as far back as the prehistoric paintings on cave walls at Lascaux. Fundamental to this work are its habitation and incorporation of a physical site, a connection to real conditions - be they visual, historical, or social - and often, a bridging of traditional art boundaries. The aesthetic power of installation art does not reside in the singular, commodified object but rather in the artwork's ability to become, not merely represent, the continuum of real experience." "Blurring the Boundaries examines the subject of installation art through the permanent collection and exhibition record of the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, an institution with a unique heritage in support of such art dating back to the 1960s."--Jacket
