Description

Madrid. Unfinished. Man Dying. A great painter lies on his deathbed.


Max Porter translates into seven extraordinary written pictures the explosive final workings of the artist's mind.


"This is my attempt to write as painting, not about it; an attempt to replicate thought, struggle, the struggle of thought, but also the sheer energy of the eye’s confrontation with the painted image. It’s the result of a long preoccupation I’ve had with Francis Bacon and I hope that, even though it is a book about death, it’s very much a living thing." - Max Porter
