Francis Bacon in Your Blood
Available in Stock
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.
