Bacon and Sutherland by Martin Hammer
Book DescriptionBoth Francis Bacon (1909--1992) and Graham Sutherland (1903--1980) were highly influential modern British artists, yet in temperament they could not have been more different. This book is the first to consider their intriguing artistic dialogue, offering a rich and subtle analysis of their work up to 1950. Martin Hammer's starting points are the strong stylistic and thematic affinities between Bacon's and Sutherland's work and the fascinating series of letters that Bacon wrote to Sutherland (transcribed in an appendix). Hammer considers the dynamics of the artists' relationship, their intertwined careers, and how they expressed the experience of living through the Second World War and the onset of the Cold War. How did these two artists engage with international modernism when much English art was narrowly insular and "patriotic?" In what ways did their art embody a creative response to Picasso and surrealism? The author investigates these and many other questions to illuminate the personal and professional relationship between two compelling twentieth-century artists.
