Search - List of Books by Michael Peppiatt

Michael Peppiatt is an art critic, author and art historian.

Peppiatt graduated from Cambridge University in 1964, and joined The Observer as art critic. He then went to Paris to take up an editorial job at Réalités magazine, where he remained until 1969, when he was appointed arts editor at Le Monde. In the mid-1970s he began reporting on cultural events across Europe for The New York Times and The Financial Times, becoming Paris correspondent for several art magazines, notably Art News and Art International. In 1985, Peppiatt became owner and editor of Art International, which he relaunched from Paris, devoting special issues to the artists he most admired.

In 1994, Peppiatt returned to London with his wife, the art historian Jill Lloyd, and their two children, where he wrote the biography of Francis Bacon (1909-1992), whose close friend and commentator he had been for thirty years. Chosen as a ‘Book of the Year’ by The New York Times and translated into several languages, the biography is still considered the definitive account of Bacon’s life and work. A revised, enlarged edition of this book is due out in September 2008.

Peppiatt has curated numerous exhibitions worldwide, notably travelling retrospectives of the School of London, Francis Bacon , Alberto Giacometti, Christian Schad and Antoni Tàpies. He is currently working on a Maillol retrospective for Barcelona and a Caravaggio-Bacon exhibit for Rome, as well as preparing a collection of his essays on Francis Bacon, to be published by Yale University Press.

In 2005, Peppiatt was awarded a Ph.D by the University of Cambridge for his publications on 20th century art. He is a member of the Society of Authors and the Royal Society of Literature.
