This is Bacon explores the life of Francis Bacon in a graphic-novel style. Bacon was one of the giants dominating the artistic landscape of the mid-twentieth century, and served as the inspiration and launching point for much of the figural and abstract art that came after him.

This highly illustrated book features not only 20 of the artist's major works, but in stunning original color illustrations portrays the events of his life and the circle of friends and associates with whom he formed a louche, brazen gang that cut open the belly of the old propriety. The major periods of Bacon's life on the edge, such as his time spent in Berlin, Paris, and the seedy milieu of post-war London, are portrayed, along with the influential figures, such as Peter Lacey and George Dyer, who shaped both his personal life and his art.

Author Kitty Hauser, illustrated by Christina Christoforou.
