Francis Bacon’s conversation was by turns witty, provocative, and profound. In gathering together Bacon’s most memorable aphorisms, Michael Peppiatt—a friend of the artist and co-curator of the Royal Academy of Arts’ exhibition Francis Bacon: Man and Beast (19/1–17/4 2022)—evokes both the force of his personality and the range of his interests.

The sayings assembled for the first time in Only Too Much is Enough form a brilliant accompaniment to Bacon’s paintings, conveying as they do not only a sceptical and sometimes disquieting outlook on human relationships, but also keen insights into the creative process.
