1. The Estate of Francis Bacon

The Estate of Francis Bacon passed upon Bacon’s death to his sole heir, John Edwards. Edwards was a companion and friend of the artist for the last sixteen years of his life. Edwards donated the Reece Mews studio which Bacon had used as his primary studio for the last 30 yrs of his life to the Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane in 1998. Bacon had been born in Dublin so in effect he was returning home. The Estate of Francis Bacon website is a treasure trove of useful  information on this most complex of artists.

5. The Life and Mystery of Giordano Bruno

One of the most important thinkers and scientists in Western thought. A visionary, a mystic, occultist, mathematician, philosopher, astronomer. I only recently became aware of Giordano Bruno. I recommend to anyone with an interest in science and philosophy to look at Bruno’s work and ideas. Truly amazing and mysterious.

For an introduction to him check out this link:

6. Lucian Freud Biography

Great wikipedia page on the famed British artist. Freud for me was one of the most important British artists ever. Freud was an artist who strove to capture the essence of modern life always maintaining a searching eye. One of the most honest artists in the depiction of the human body.
