Record Breaking Bacon’s triptych Reaches Christie’s

Whilst earlier we introduced you to the Francis Bacon’s array of paintings’ including Bullfight painting, his self portrait and not to forget ‘Study from the human body man turning on the light’. Today it seems the list needs to be updated as Bacon’s latest creation of a three-part painting identified as ‘Triptych 1974-77’ is anticipated to generate 25 million pounds ($50 million) in a scheduled auction of contemporary art sale at Christie’s in London on 6 February. This masterpiece painting is one of a series of evocative works Bacon produced after the suicide of his beloved George Dyer in 1971. The three portraits reflect a warped figure on seashore, unnoticed by two mysterious, hazily gloomy figures. Bacon’s creation dubbed as ‘Study of a Nude with Figure in a Mirror’ would be available for auction at Sotheby’s.
