Francis Bacon: Portraits and Heads Exhibition Catalogue

Martin Hammer and Richard Calvocoressi

Francis Bacon is celebrated as one of the most important British artists of the twentieth century. From the 1940s to his death in 1992 he worked consistently as a painter, ignoring other passing, fashionable trends in art. Throughout his career, the human figure was the dominant subject in his work: his paintings of men and women go far beyond a simple likeness and instead are portraits of complex psychological states. In two essays, the book examines forty of some of his most intense works: his small-format portraits.
