Sinopsis:

The painting of Francis Bacon (1909-1992) defines the shattered self-image of Europe in the aftermath of the Second World War, and his wracked human figures are now basic to the twentieth century's visual lexicon. Clearing away all moral scaffolding, Bacon made room for what he called "the brutality of fact" to implode onto his canvases, paring back his subjects to animal function and bloodlust. In Bacon the figure is almost always isolated and pitched against an unforgiving interior lit only by a bare light bulb (one could write an interesting history of the light bulb in art, tracking its trajectory from, say, Van Gogh to Vuillard's lamplight, to the desolate hanging bulbs of Bacon and Philip Guston). Francis Bacon had few better critics of his work than himself--as witnessed in this superb statement of intent to David Sylvester: "What I want to do is distort the thing far beyond the appearance, but in the distortion to bring it back to a recording of the appearance." But one of the few writers whose sensibility he trusted was the French author Michel Leiris. Leiris shared Bacon's feel for nerve-end acuity in art, as his great autobiography "Manhood" attests, and with Bacon's sanction, wrote the essay for Poligrafa's landmark monograph of 1987, which also included a selection of 240 key paintings made by Bacon himself. That volume, an essential text for Bacon fans and scholars, is here revised and reprinted for the first time.

Sinopsis:

« Il semblerait qu'à peu d'exceptions près le désir de toucher le fond même du réel pousse Bacon, d'une manière ou d'une autre, jusqu'aux limites du tolérable et que, lorsqu'il s'attaque à un thème apparemment anodin (cas de beaucoup le plus fréquent, surtout dans les oeuvres récentes), il faille que le paroxysme soit introduit du moins par la facture, comme si l'acte de peindre procédait nécessairement d'une sorte d'exacerbation, donnée ou non dans ce qui est pris pour base, et comme si, la réalité de la vie ne pouvant être saisie que sous une forme criante, criante de vérité comme on dit, ce cri devait être, s'il n'est pas issu de la chose même, celui de l'artiste possédé par la rage de saisir. » Michel Leiris
