About this product
- DescriptionDespite his militant atheism, Francis Bacon (1909-1992) exploited the symbols of Christianity, especially the Crucifixion and the Pope, throughout his career. Rina Arya explains how the artist redeployed religious iconography both to show Christianity's untenability in the modern age and to convey an experience of the human condition.
- Author BiographyRina Arya is Reader in Visual Communication at the University of Wolverhampton. She has published a range of articles on Bacon which include discussions on his representations of the Crucifixion and the Pope, constructions of homosexuality in his work and the cultural aspects of Bacon's art. She is also editor of Francis Bacon: Critical and Theoretical Perspectives (due to be published in 2012).
