Francis Bacon's Studio

Margarita Cappock

Francis Bacon (1909–1992) is widely regarded as one of the most important post-war painters, and his work is represented in major public collections worldwide. The extraordinarily rich contents of his studio at 7 Reece Mews, South Kensington, London, in which the artist worked from 1961 until his death, provided the impetus for many of his most important paintings. The studio contents totalled 7500 objects, among them books, photographs, artists’ materials, slashed canvases, works on paper and handwritten notes. Together they offer unprecedented insights into the source materials and working methods of one of the giants of modern art.

 

The first in-depth study of Bacon’s studio, offering unprecedented insights into the significance on the artist’s work of the objects found there

One of the most important and engaging contributions to the study of Bacon’s work ever published 
Profusely illustrated throughout, and beautifully produced 
Essential reading for curators, art historians, artists and anyone interested in the art and culture of the twentieth century
