Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation

Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation


In 2017, the new edition of the Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation’s first book, originally published in 2015, has been enhanced by texts, photographs and memories from the artist’s friends: the writer Yves Peyré, the artist John Pelling and Anne-Marie Crété de Chambine.

It has also been revised to include recent research and discoveries which has enabled us to expand the biography section on the artist.

Not for sale, only available from the Foundation.



Francis Bacon, France and Monaco

Francis Bacon, France and Monaco


This bilingual book has been published to coincide with the exhibition ‘Francis Bacon, Monaco et la culture française’ which was held at the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco, in summer 2016.

Jointly published by the Foundation and Albin Michel, it has been compiled under the direction of Martin Harrison, the exhibition’s curator and author of Francis Bacon: Catalogue Raisonné. Nine eminent art historians (Martin Harrison, Sarah Whitfield, Amanda J. Harrison, Catherine Howe, Dr. Rebecca Daniels, Dr Carol Jacobi, Dr. Darren Ambrose, Dr. James Wishart, Eddy Batache.) have contributed essays. The book’s foreword was written by Majid Boustany, founder/director of the Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation.

The book invites us to explore the strong bonds Francis Bacon enjoyed with France and Monaco and sheds light on the influence of French culture on the artist’s life and work.

Available to order online ( and on amazon) and in bookstores.
