OP FRANCIS BACON. Ed. by Rudy Chiappini. Museo d'Arte Moderna, Villa Malpensata, Lugano, 1993. Published in association with Electa, Milan. 182 pp. with 95 ills. (68 col., 5 foldout) and 67 reference ills. 28 x 25 cm. LC 93-190149 In English.
A notable review of Bacon's career that features major triptychs from international collections as well as lesser-known and previously unexhibited canvases, this catalogue presents excellent reproductions and individual discussions of 62 works by the renowned British painter (1909-1992), among them many of the grotesquely distorted portraits and figure studies for which the artist is best known. Four substantial essays discuss the evolution of Bacon's disquieting oeuvre, the psychological themes reflected in his imagery, the unconventional character of his working methods, and the significance of his acclaimed 1961 series of variations on Velazquez's Portrait of Pope Innocent X.
