9781408856246: Francis Bacon in Your Blood

"This fine memoir is more insightful than gossipy, and as a subject Bacon is just about unbeatable." -- The New York Times

In June of 1963, when Michael Peppiatt first met Francis Bacon, the former was a college boy at Cambridge, the latter already a famous painter, more than thirty years his senior. And yet, Peppiatt was welcomed into the volatile artist's world; Bacon, considered by many to be "mad, bad, and dangerous to know," proved himself a devoted friend and father figure, even amidst the drinking and gambling.

Though Peppiatt would later write perhaps the definitive biography of Bacon, his sharply drawn memoir has a different vigor, revealing the artist at his most intimate and indiscreet, and his London and Paris milieus in all their seediness and splendor. Bacon is felt with immediacy, as Peppiatt draws from contemporary diaries and records of their time together, giving us the story of a friendship, and a new perspective on an artist of enduring fascination.

About the Author :

Michael Peppiatt studied at the University of Cambridge, where he began his career and an art writer by writing exhibition reviews for the Observer. In an international career as a writer and curator, he has curated numerous exhibitions of Francis Bacon's and other artists' work and been published in Le Monde, the New York Times, the Financial Times, Art News and Art International, which he bought and relaunched in 1985. In 2005, he was awarded a Ph.D. by the University of Cambridge for his published work in the field of twentieth-century art. He is a member of the Society of Authors and the Royal Society of Literature, and in 2010 he joined the international board of the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome.

Review :

"A frank and stylish memoir." ―The New Yorker

"A gouache decoupe of a friend, against a background of art history . . . Peppiatt’s remembrance is neither tribute nor apologia. Francis Bacon in Your Blood is a candid portrayal of a very famous man who could be very generous, even with his foes, and very petty, even with his friends." ―John Reed, The New York Times Book Review

"Every page is fresh, immediate, and flashing with glimpses into Bacon’s complicated psyche and Peppiatt’s own conundrums . . . He celebrates with ever-replenished wonder the timeless artist’s creativity, 'freedom and energy and total individuality.'" ―Donna Seaman, Booklist

Description du livre Bloomsbury Circus, 2015. État : New. Michael Peppiatt met Francis Bacon in 1963 in Soho's French House to request an interview for a student magazine, and their friendship continued until the artist's death 30 years later. In this sparkling, indiscreet memoir, Peppiatt recalls Bacon's notorious hell-raising, his ferocious dedication to his painting, and their passionate conversations about life, art, love and death. The result is both a history of a vanished London Bohemia and an insight into one of the 20th century's greatest painters. N° de réf. du libraire 224995

Description du livre Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It is a story I have been wanting to write for a long time, telling it as it really was before that whole world that I shared with Francis vanishes.Michael Peppiatt met Francis Bacon in June 1963 in Soho s French House to request an interview for a student magazine he was editing. Bacon invited him to lunch, and over oysters and Chablis they began a friendship and a no-holds-barred conversation that would continue until Bacon s death thirty years later. Fascinated by the artist s brilliance and charisma, Peppiatt accompanied him on his nightly round of prodigious drinking from grand hotel to louche club and casino, seeing all aspects of Bacon s gilded gutter life and meeting everybody around him, from Lucian Freud and Sonia Orwell to East End thugs; from predatory homosexuals to Andy Warhol and the Duke of Devonshire. He also frequently discussed painting with Bacon in his studio, where only the artist s closest friends were ever admitted. The Soho photographer, John Deakin, who introduced the young student to the famous artist, called Peppiatt Bacon s Boswell . Despite the chaos Bacon created around him Peppiatt managed to record scores of their conversations ranging over every aspect of life and art, love and death, the revelatory and hilarious as well as the poignantly tragic. Gradually Bacon became a kind of father figure for Peppiatt, and the two men s lives grew closely intertwined. In this intimate and deliberately indiscreet account, Bacon is shown close-up, grand and petty, tender and treacherous by turn, and often quite unlike the myth that has grown up around him. This is a speaking portrait, a living likeness, of the defining artist of our times. N° de réf. du libraire ARG9781408856246

Description du livre Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2015. Gebundene Ausgabe. État : Neu. Neu Neu/sofort versandbereit - auf Lager - Its a story I have been wanting to write for a long time, telling it as it really was, before that whole world vanishes and is retold by those who were never there. Michael Peppiatt first met Francis Bacon in June 1963 in Soho's French House where, as a young student, he persuaded the photograher John Deakin to introduce him to the famous artist. Whisked to Wheeler's, Peppiatt was immediately caught up in Bacon's whirl, and there, over oysters and white wine, the first of hundreds of conversations soared; the first steps towards a friendship with the controversial painter which would endure for thirty years. From Bacon's first electrifying early exhibitions - notably the major impact of his 1971 Paris reprospective, the very day Bacon's lover George Dyer was found dead in their hotel room - through the chaos of drink, drugs and gambling; predatory homosexuals, furtive clubs and East End criminals - Peppiatt was exhilarated by the freedom, vitality and artistic brilliance of the man who created such provocative, alarming work, the defining images of our times. This is the story of two lives intertwined; not a birth-to-death narrative, but a series of moments at which the intensity that Bacon radiated transformed Peppiatt's life. Intimate and revelatory, the seamier sides of Bacon and the London art scene are here in all their glory, the harshness and despair balanced by profound admiration. 416 pp. Englisch.
