Francis Bacon e la condizione esistenziale nell'arte contemporanea = and the existential condition in contemporary art by Francis Bacon( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and Italian and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his figurative paintings, often charged with an abstract character, the Irish painter Francis Bacon (1910-1992) so deformed, distorted, and warped the human body that he created icons of human failure in an existential sense. His figures fail at their attempts to position themselves in space and time, within the framework of the painting. This publication contrasts the master's oeuvre with a selection of works by contemporary artists who reflect in equal measure the human condition. Nathalie Djurberg, Adrian Ghenie, Arcangelo Sassolino, Chiharu Shiota, and Annegret Soltau enter into a dialogue with their artistic predecessor

Francis Bacon : incunabula by Martin Harrison( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1949 Francis Bacon found his subject - the human body - and from then on it remained his principal theme. But he did not paint from life. Instead he appropriated images from the mass media that he manipulated into his 'studies'. His paintings bore witness to the shattered psychology of the time and shot him to a prominence that hardly diminished over the next fifty years, and that continues to rise." "This book presents many of the 'working documents' about which Bacon was entirely secretive but which, it emerges, were integral to his creative process. Culled from thousands of pieces of original material found in his studio, including newspapers, magazines, books and photographs, these items have each been exhaustively and minutely researched, providing for the first time comprehensive details of the artist's sources. This base material - folded, torn, clipped and spattered with paint - underwent an alchemical transformation frond mundane matter into new images." "Nearly all previously unseen, these visually thrilling documents demonstrate Bacon's tactile, visceral relationship with his sources, and his unerring eye for seeking out visual stimulation in the most unexpected places. His paintings emerged from a dialogue between great art of the past and photographic imagery of the present: and, as a painter of the transient, his work also shared the pulse and flicker of his other significant inspiration, early cinema. His fascination with medium itself - the texture of paint, the quality of newsprint, the techniques of mechanical reproduction of both the still and moving image - throws light on the nature of Bacon's points of contact with the twentieth century."--Jaquette

Francis Bacon : archivos privados by Martin Harrison( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in Spanish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El libro presenta documentos encontrados en el estudio lodinense de Bacon y donados a la Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery of Modern Art de Dublín: periódicos, revistas, libros y fotografías que nos ilustran sobre las fuentes de inspiración y el proceso creativo del artista. Los materiales, rasgados, doblados, recortados o manchados de pintura dejan de ser objetos mundanos para transformarse en imágenes nuevas y son la prueba de la relación táctil y visceral que Bacon mantenía con sus fuentes: sus cuadros emergen de un diálogo entre el arte del pasado, la imaginería fotográfica y el primer cine y reflejan su interés por la textura de la pintura, la calidad de la impresión y las técnicas de reproducción mecánica de la imagen
James Richards : to replace a minute's silence with a minute's applause by James Richards( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turner-Prize nominated artist James Richards has selected Francis Bacon's 'Study for a Portrait' (1953) for this fourth and final presentation of works from the V-A-C collection, Moscow, on show at the Whitechapel Gallery from 23 June - 30 August 2015. The artist has composed a new sound work for this display, which is played throughout a redesigned gallery space that has been carpeted and draped in curtains to create a dramatic atmosphere in which to present this iconic painting. This major work from the V-A-C collection by Francis Bacon depicts an unknown, suited man sitting on a grand armchair evocative of a Papal throne, set against a midnight blue backdrop. One of the last works painted in his studio at the Royal College of Art, this unique work by the artist pre-dates his 1954 Man in Blue paintings.--from Press Release
