Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Francis Bacon (1909 — 92) speaks openly to his close friend Michel Archimbaud, whose searching questions shed a new light on Bacon's work. The discussion is wide-ranging, touching on painting, literature and music, with candid revelations about Bacon's childhood, his relationship with his father, his friends and the influences which have shaped his art. It is punctuated with revealing and sometimes disparaging remarks about a whole host of artists, including among others Rubens, Blake, Monet, Cezanne, Picasso, Balthus, Giacometti, Shakespeare and Baudelaire. These interviews can be regarded as Bacon's final vision as they took place in the artist's studio in Paris between October 1991 and April 1992, shortly before he died.

Synopsis:

A collection of interviews with Francis Bacon conducted shortly before his death in April 1992. In them he discusses the influences that shaped his art, and his views on a whole range of artists including Rubens, Blake, Monet, Cezanne and Picasso.

Synopsis:

Francis Bacon, a self-taught painter, became one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. Here he speaks openly to his close friend Michel Archimbaud who sets out to discover the man behind the paintings. His searching questions shed a new light on Bacon's work in spite of his claim that he finds it impossible to talk about his painting. He talks candidly about his childhood, his relationship with his father, his friends and the influences which have shaped his art. The discussion is wide-ranging, touching on painting, literature and music. The interviews are punctuated with Bacon's revealing and sometimes disparaging remarks about a whole host of artists including amongst others Rubens, Blake, Monet, Cezanne, Picasso, Balthus, Giacometti, Shakespeare, Baudelaire, Wagner, Debussy and Schonberg. These interviews, conducted in French, took place in Bacon's studio between October 1991 and April 1992. They were to continue in Paris following Bacon's trip to Madrid, but he died in Madrid on 28 April 1992. As such these conversations can be seen as his last recorded thoughts.
