In this deeply moving, rare interview of Francis Bacon for the RTS (Radio Télévision Suisse), on July 2 1964, the artist, considered by many as the most significant painter of the 20th century, speaks about art and life in the most sincere, and disturbing way.


He evokes in French his endless struggle to exist as an artist and as a man, tells about his youth, his homosexuality, his fear of violence, solitude, age, the artists who have inspired him throughout his career, Rembrandt, Velasquez. In his vulnerability and apparent detachment, he speaks truths as hard and clear as diamonds.
