Item description for Francis Bacon: Commitment And Conflict by Wieland Schmied...

Francis Bacon Commitment and Conflict Wieland Schmied

Francis Bacon is given a highly insightful re-examination through critical commentary, brilliant reproductions and private photographs in this beautifully produced flexi edition.

The existential anxiety of modern man, the inescapability of death, and the catastrophe of loneliness are some of the themes that wend their way through Francis Bacon's work, much of which took the form of triptychs or tortured self-portraits. In this comprehensive study of one of the twentieth century's most passionately committed artists, Wieland Schmied offers an insightful overview of Bacon's life, analyzes his paintings and examines the creative processes they embody. He explores in depth Bacon's subtle use of space, the development of his imagery, idiosyncratic painting technique, and place in the pantheon of twentieth-century artists.

Wieland Schmied is the author of many books on twentieth-century art. He lives in Munich, Germany.

Reviews - What do customers think about Francis Bacon: Commitment And Conflict?

too small to read  Sep 26, 2007
The type was so small it was almost unreadable. It's as if the book was a small, cheap version of a large art book.
Not what but How  Jul 26, 2007
This is a fine book, content is five stars. My problem is with the pt. size of the text. I would say the type in this book is 1/3 the size of most books. If you use glasses or have trouble reading small type this is not a book you will be able to read on the subway. Photos, reproductions, information and price are very good. Have fun reading it, just know that if the lay out was different the text could have been larger.
Definitive Volume  Jun 13, 2001
Of all the books in print about the works of Francis Bacon, so many of them can be browsed without paying much attention to the commentary. Not here. This volume is extravagantly illustrated with many lesser known paintings by Francis Bacon, but it doesn't stop there. There is a very fine chronological timeline with photographs which show us the progression of the artist, his friends, lovers, influencing photographs, and interactions with other artists of his day. There is also a complete Exibition Schedule which holds some fascinating bits of information even to the avid Bacon fan. There are many photographs of Bacon's infamous studio in all its squallid splendor - some with the artist, some after his death. For sheer joy in getting to know a troubled genius, this book should be high on the list of recommended texts.
