Action: Painting; 4. Science--Nature; 5. Art--Photography--Art; Commentaries; acknowledgments. First Edtion, 2009. "In 1949 Francis Bacon (1909-1992) found his subject--the human body--and from then on it remained his principal theme. But he did not paint from life. Instead he appropriated images from the mass media that he manipulated into his 'studies'. This book presents over 200 of these documents, about which Bacon was secretive but which, it emerges, were integral to his creative process. Previously unseen, these visually thrilling documents demonstrate Bacon's tactile, visceral relationship with his sources and his unerring eye for seeking out visual stimulation in the most unexpected places."

Gray paper-covered boards with two circling dolphins on front board, white lettering to spine, and illustrated endpapers.
