Francis Bacon, full face and in profile, July 14, 2009
By Grady Harp (Los Angeles, CA United States) - See all my reviews

Though many reviewers and critics of this new edition of a 1983 book published in Spanish by the same name and by the same author are angry with the presentation of the Bacon paintings included, the simple fact that Michel Leiris' fine essay on Bacon, possibly the finest ever written, is once again available to the public more than makes up for the quality of the reproductions

Las tres estrellas son por el ensayo que acompaña a las reproducciones df Francis Bacon. No sirve en nada para conocer al artista, sólo se limita a unir ilimitadamente conceptos vagos. Gracias a Dios, sólo son 30 páginas.

Después de eso vienen más de 200 páginas con reproducciones de Bacon. En general, son buenas, pero por momentos tuve la sensación de que Bacon es ligeramente aburrido: abusó mucho de su estilo. Extrañé una reproducción del Bacon que existe en el Museo Tamayo.
