Francis Bacon: incunabula
In 1949 Francis Bacon found his main subject, the human body, and from then on it remained his principal theme. But he did not paint from life.

This book presents over 200 of these documents, about which Bacon was secretive but which, it emerges, were integral to his creative process, along with some of the works that the material inspired.
