Francis Bacon’s Bullfight and Self Portrait to Fetch $50 mn at Sotheby’s

All hopes of artists and collectors are attached with the soon-to-be auctioned masterpieces, paintings and statues at Sotheby’s. To the familiar list of Francis Bacon’s Bullfight, a rare 710-year-old copy of the Magna Carta, ancient statue of Guennol Lioness, Van Gogh’s Wheat Fields and the Jeff Koon’s 9-foot heart, I am here to introduce the self-portrait of Francis Bacon.

The two paintings of this Anglo-Irish artist (1909-1992) viz. the “Study for Bullfight” and “Self Portrait” are expected to fetch $50 million in an auction scheduled at Sotheby’s fall contemporary art sale in New York on 14 November. Unlike “Study for Bullfight No. 1, 2nd Version” that is expected to fetch $35 mn, the self portrait is anticipated to generate $15 mn. His ‘Self Portrait’ is a clear reflection of his struggle along with subject of identity.
