This book offers a juxtaposition of Bacon and Caravaggio - the two greatest interpreters of human representation in its deepest and most innovative aspects. Both painters, in their time, succeeded in producing, with upsetting originality, the tragedy of human existence, not merely as a dramatic abstract condition or chance sequence of personal and historical events but as a private feeling - intimate and inseparable from existence itself. Caravaggio's work expresses his anxiety for the spiritual salvation of mankind, Bacon expresses the threat of the unknown, which lays inside the human spirit; both painters investigated the depths of the human psyche.
