Publisher Comments:

Subliminal creatures: Dreamworlds beneath the surface
 
Francis Bacon (1909-1992) possessed the rare ability to transform unconscious compulsions into figurative, human-like forms that seem to evoke the raw emotions that bore them. Mixing realism and abstraction, Bacon delves deep beneath the surfaces of things, opening up the human body to reveal the chaos that lies within and struggling with all that is inexplicable. Erotic and grotesquely beautiful is the work of this legendary painter whose haunting, distorted figures have inspired entire generations of painters who seek to emulate his highly original style.

About the Author

Luigi Ficacci studied art history in Rome under Giulio Carlo Argan. For many years, he was curator at the Istituto Nazionale per la Grafica in Rome and lectured at various Italian universities. Since 2007, he has been Bologna's general museum director (Soprintendente ai Beni Culturali). The focal points of his research work are the issues raised by 17th and 18th century and contemporary Italian and European art.
