FRANCIS BACON: INVISIBLE ROOMS/UNSICHTBARE RAUME. Ed. by Ina Conzen. Tate Liverpool, 2016. Published in association with Prestel-Verlag, Munich. 256 pp. with 150 col. ills. 27 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783791355764 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: Arguably one of the most influential and original painters of the 20th century, Francis Bacon painted haunting portraits that employed themes of crucifixion, torment, and isolation. Incorporating the insights of The Logic of Sensation, French philosopher Gilles Deleuze's seminal criticism of Bacon's work, this volume highlights Bacon's approach to space as one of the defining forces of his work. By organizing the spatial and dramatic structure of his compositions with barely visible cubic or elliptical cages, his figures become trapped in a kind of invisible room. This sense of confinement creates a direct, unsettling impression on the viewer, and further emphasizes the painter's dark vision. This book features stunning reproductions of 40 large-scale paintings, including Study for a Portrait (1952), Chimpanzee (1955), Three Studies of the Male Back (1970), and Sand Dune (1983) as well as a selection of rarely exhibited works on paper. This book also contains a series of essays that explore the range of variation in Bacon's use of isolating constructions over a period of nearly 50 years, as well as the nature of his painting technique and compositions.
