Thames & Hudson, 1975 First edition Softcover, 128 pages, 200 x 280 mm Condition: Near Fine
The extraordinarily revealing interviews with Francis Bacon conducted by the distinguished art critic David Sylvester amount to a unique statement by Bacon on his art and on art in general. In the book, a classic of its kind, Bacon considers the problems of realism and sheds new light on aspects of his life.
Bacon’s obsessive effort to record and re-create the human form, his practice of making variation on old masters’ paintings, his dependence on chance, and his views about the way in which his work has been interpreted are only some of the many subjects discussed and investigated in depth during these historic encounters. Interviews with Francis Bacon provides unparalleled access to the thought, work, and life of one of the creative geniuses of the twentieth century.
