1996 November, DLM No 62, Deluxe Edition of 150, signed Francis Bacon

37 x 27cm / 63 x 53cm 

SOLD

Francis Bacon, one of Britain's most famous and infamous artists of the 20th Century, prolific and renowned for his engaging, charismatic and perhaps volatile character. He was extremely articulate and well read, and today his work is collected and sought after. 

This image showing his lover George Dyer crouching, is important, bearing in mind the tragic death of Dyer, Bacon's lover, in 1971. As from this point on Bacon and his art became darker,  more introspective and preoccupied with the passage of time and death.
