Francis Bacon’s “Triptych 1974-77” Fetches $51.1 mn

In the world of auction, here is the lately happened auction of Francis Bacon’s creation to which you should lend all your ears. Known as triptych, the artwork got sold for $51.5 million (inclusive of Christie’s fees). With this sale “Triptych 1974-77” penned down a record for postwar work of art auctioned in Europe. But unfortunately the masterpiece fell short of touching the $52.7 million and thereby missed the opportunity of beating Irish-born artist who generated $52.7 million for his 1962 “Study for Innocent X.” The artwork gold sold to an anonymous male bidder, footing on the periphery of the packed auction area and left within seconds of falling of hammer.
