His close friendships and frequent studio visits with Dubuffet, Sonia Delaunay, Balthus, Henry Moore, Francis Bacon, Tàpies, Claes Oldenburg, Brassaï and Cartier-Bresson, among many others, have produced an extraordinary range of revealing interviews which combine to give a unique perspective on art from the Second World War to the present day. He began his career as an art critic in London and Paris in the 1960s and eventually became editor and publisher of Art International magazine. In addition to curating numerous exhibitions worldwide, he is the author of The School of London (1987), Francis Bacon: Anatomy of an Enigma (1997), Alberto Giacometti in Postwar Paris (2001), Vincent van Gogh (2003), Christian Schad (2003), Francis Bacon in the 1950s (2006), Jean Dubuffet (2006), Francis Bacon: Studies for a Portrait (2008), Caravaggio/Bacon (2009), In Giacometti's Studio (2010), and Interviews with Artists 1966-2012 (2012). He is currently curating a Miró exhibition for Germany and writing the first of several memoirs.
