Katharina Günther was sponsored by The Estate of Francis Bacon to undertake a twelve-month research project, working with Bacon's original material in Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. This new book publishes, for the first time, some of the most exciting and informative findings of her research.
This book is an in-depth investigation into the Francis Bacon's studio archive at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. It is an essential tool for all those interested in Francis Bacon and a must for future scholarship on the artist.
When John Edwards, Bacon’s sole heir, donated the Reece Mews studio to the Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin, a huge amount of previously unpublished material was found. Margarita Cappock, the head of collections at the Hugh Lane, coordinated the painstakingly precise relocation, producing this book to examine the new information that gradually came to light.
