The Irish painter Francis Bacon (Dublin 1909 - Madrid 1992) has been a fundamental figure for the development of the XX century visual arts. Troubled and introvert artist, with his work he tried to investigate the essence and the psyche of modern man, debunking his body and revealing the innermost aspects of the ego.
This publication is the catalogue of the exhibition set up in Sesto Fiorentino from 25 November 2012 to 13 January 2013, in the twentieth anniversary of the painter’s death. 99 works are reproduced here, including some of his drawings and paintings compared to 35 physiognomies of contemporary artists such as Basquiat, De Maria, Lindstrom, Warhol, Casagrande, Cuniberti, Baj, Newman and Borra.
