Based on conversations with Bacon that extended over several years, John Russell's original study revealed much about the man and the artist.
On Bacon's death in 1992, the unique vision and accomplishment of one of the greatest artists of the century could be appreciated in their totality.
In a new final chapter, Russell does just that, as well as discussing Bacon's late work, Bacon's intentions and his achievements, both frequently misunderstood, are here set in perspective.
John Russell was chief art critic of the "New York Times" from 1982 to 1990 and is the author of many books on the arts, including "The Meanings of Modern Art" (Thames and Hudson, revised edition, 1992).
