The literature on Francis Bacon is large and ever expanding. While Bacon has been vividly discussed during his lifetime, after his death the uncovering of sketches by the artist, a rediscovery of paintings previously lost or presumed destroyed, and the reconstruction of his studio in Dublin have prompted a growing number of new studies, articles and exhibitions. Francis Bacon: Catalogue Raisonné, published by The Estate of Francis Bacon in 2016 contains a comprehensive bibliography of writing on the artist, which forms the basis of the present section on francis-bacon.com. The Estate of Francis Bacon is currently in the process of digitising, editing, expanding and updating this bibliography and new entries will be uploaded on a regular basis.
You can filter the entries by publication type, and sort them by author, year and title. You can find more information on the Francis Bacon Bibliography in our Notes for Users.
