Issue no. 1 of Bacon Review


The first issue of Bacon Review concentrates on neglected aspects of Francis Bacon’s life and work, presenting his achievements in startlingly new ways.

The three main features are by Yvonne Scott, who has fresh perspectives of Bacon’s admiration for ancient Egyptian art, by Gill Hedley, who tells the story of Bacon’s first important critic, Robert Melville, and by Sophie Pretorius, who explains the significance of Bacon’s friendship with the artist Richard Hamilton. Bacon Review also includes many hitherto unseen photographs from his family’s archive, and several surprises.
