Francis Bacon : The Logic of Sensation, Paperback

Francis Bacon : The Logic of Sensation Paperback

Part of the Continuum Impacts series


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.
