Francis Bacon Summary

Francis Bacon: The Logic of Sensation by Gilles Deleuze

Francis Bacon is Deleuze's long-awaited work on Bacon, widely regarded as the one of the most radical painters of the twentieth century. The book presents a deep engagement with Bacon's work and the nature of art. Deleuze analyses the distinctive innovations that came to mark Bacon's style while introducing a number of his own famous concepts. Deleuze links Bacon's work to Cezanne's notion of a 'logic' of sensation, which reaches its summit in colour. Investigating this logic, Deleuze explores Bacon's crucial relation to past painters such as Velasquez, Cezanne, and Soutine, as well as Bacon's rejection of expressionism and abstract painting. Translated by Daniel W. Smith

Francis Bacon Reviews

'A lively and systematic study of Bacon's work. The book is clearly organised, helping to make complicated arguments easier to follow'. Modern Painters; 'an entertaining read' Art Monthly; 'A path breaking work on the aesthetics of sensation, the philosophy of colour, on form, and on painting in general, Francis Bacon is one of the most important, if not the most crucial, of all of Deleuze's writings.' Tom Conley, Harvard University
