Francis Bacon and Nazi Propaganda by Martin Hammer (Tate Publishing / 2012)

In this original and compelling approach to his work, Martin Hammer presents Francis bacon as a 'painter of modern life', concerned to distil the feelings, sensations and memories associated with living through the rise of fascism in the 1930s, the Second World War, the revelations of the Holocaust, and then the early Cold War and post-colonial struggles. Hammer supports his argument with extensive evidence of Bacon’s use of pre-war Nazi propaganda photography as a springboard for his paintings.

 Hardback in excellent / near mint condition with clean, unmarked pages which are free from notes and underlining and very light wear only to dust jacket. (Pages: 222)
