The Francis Bacon Collection

Cristiano Lovatelli, Edward Lucie-Smith, Fernando Castro Flórez, Ambra Draghetti

Scripta Maneant, 2021


Known as “The Italian Drawings of Francis Bacon”, these previously unpublished works are collected into one volume for the first time.

From a private collection in Italy, these previously unpublished works by Francis Bacon are presented here in thematic sections, each of which is preceded by a short introductory text. Nearly 700 drawings, pastels, and collages were gifted by Bacon over the course of many years to his close friend, Italian journalist Cristiano Lovatelli Ravarino. His commentary is included here, along with texts by noted art historians Edward Lucie-Smith and Fernando Castro Flórez, and an authentication report from Ambra Draghetti, graphological consultant to the Court of Bologna.
