Om forfatteren

David Sylvester CBE (1924–2001) was a prominent writer, art critic and curator, and a leading authority on René Magritte, Henry Moore and, in particular, Francis Bacon. He first wrote about Bacon’s work in the late 1940s, and the pair soon became close friends. Over the next forty years, he was Bacon’s Boswell, interpreter, confidant, occasional model and briefly agent. He curated or co-curated numerous major exhibitions at museums around the world, including one-man shows of Picasso, Miró, Magritte, Moore, Giacometti and Bacon. His published books include Interviews with Francis Bacon, Looking Back at Francis Bacon and the five-volume Magritte catalogue raisonné.
