From the anguished, screaming, tortured canvases of Francis Bacon to the witty, ironic, twirling, sliced farmyard animals of Damien Hirst, Matthew Collings guides us merrily through art’s Yellow Pages. “Matthew’s wired and rushy art history, alternately irritating and insightful, gives late 20th century BritArt what it needs–a confusing, loony relevance”.–David Bowie.
