Volume 8 of the publication series of the MGKSiegen in cooperation with the Department of Art History of the University of Cologne.
Francis Bacon's portrait of his first life partner, Peter Lacy, is attractive and repulsive at the same time. The monumental Portrait from 1962 was hidden from the public for a long time. It turns out to be a highly significant work, created at a turning point in the artist's career. Markus Rath brings together the strands of the work's genesis and embeds the painting in Bacon's visual world.
