Francis Bacon from A to Z, Steve Finbow

Inspired by the documentary L'Abécédaire de Gilles Deleuze, this book explores and analyzes the life, works, inspirations, influences and legacy of Francis Bacon. In a series of essays ranging from the biographical through critical theory to nonfictional responses, From A to Z forms an overall critique of Bacon’s oeuvre from his earliest work in design through the triptychs, heads and popes to the late pared-down canvases. From Artaudian bodies without organs to zones of indiscernibility, this autonomous abecedarian study reveals transgressive and radical aspects of the artist and his work.
