Francis Bacon or The Measurement of Excess
Yves Peyré, writer and friend of Francis Bacon (1909-1992), devotes to the work and destiny of the artist a particularly complete work both in terms of analysis and reproduction of paintings and drawings.
He evokes the major contribution of this great unclassifiable painter, from his beginnings as a young designer in the 1920s to his last great triptychs in the late 1980s, and offers a personal and touching look at his complex personality and his extraordinary work.
A tormented work, sometimes violent, reflecting his most intimate wounds, but nevertheless luminous by its colours and by his quest for the absolute. The purpose, always based on precise facts, considerably broadens the vision of the work through in-depth interpretations.
This package is an undeniably new contribution. The book is based on a flawless knowledge of the work and is enriched by the author's proximity to Francis Bacon himself, proposing a philosophical, poetic and artistic stroll through the various stages of an exploration that stands out in all respects.
