Due February 2017. Publisher's description: The first in-depth publication to uncover the long relationship Francis Bacon enjoyed with France, Monaco and French culture. Martin Harrison, the foremost expert on Bacon, brings a new light to a somewhat unexpected side of the artist's life and work.It was in Paris in 1927, at an exhibition dedicated to Picasso, that Francis Bacon grasped his vocation as a painter. In 1946, he moved to Monaco on the French Riviera where he lived for four years, his time in the Principality marking a turning point in his art; with his "popes" series, he became a painter of the human figure. In Paris he befriended artists and intellectuals, such as Giacometti and Leiris, whilst the city would become the setting for the crystallization of his reputation in 1971 with the retrospective at the Grand Palais. This bilingual publication -- co-published by Albin Michel and The Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation -- tells of Bacon's deep ties with France and Monaco, and has been overseen by Martin Harrison, author of Francis Bacon: Catalogue Raisonne and curator of the coinciding exhibition Francis Bacon, Monaco et la culture franc╬aise which runs at Grimaldi Forum, Monaco from 2 July2016 until 4 September 2016.
