FRANCIS BACON HC GN
(W) Portolano, Cristina (A) Portolano, Cristina (CA)
as complex, colorful, and highly charged as his paintings. Drawn in shades of
mauve, red, yellow, and blue that distinguished his palette, these illustrations
weave together a troubling but compassionate narrative, one that draws on
the tragic events of Bacon's childhood and youth, as well as reflecting the
profoundly passionate yearnings of the artist he became.
Separated into thematic and chronological sections the novel highlights the prevailing
influences of Bacon's life and times: his early autodidacticism and estrangement from
his family; his struggles to make his way as a surrealist painter and his destruction of
his early work. It traces his gradual success in postwar Europe, his powerful and often
violent romantic relationships, his foray into portraiture, and his never-ending search
for subject matter and meaning in his work.
