The Francis Bacon Collection
Title: The Francis Bacon Collection
Author: Fernando Castro Florez
From a private collection in Italy, these previously unpublished works by Francis Bacon are presented here in thematic sections, each of which is preceded by a short introductory text. Nearly 700 drawings, pastels, and collages were gifted by Bacon over the course of many years to his close friend, Italian journalist Cristiano Lovatelli Ravarino. His commentary is included here, along with texts by noted art historians.
The works were photographed expressly for this publication. Text in English and Italian.
