FRANCIS BACON EXHIBITION POSTER
Francis Bacon (1909-1992) is one of the most distinctive, provocative and influential painters of the 20th century.
His singular aesthetic was a violent intersection between abstraction and expressionistic portraiture.
While the subjects in his paintings were often identified, whether they be friends, lovers or even the Pope, distinctive features were typically smeared and distorted.
Bacon's canvases fetch astounding prices at auction, frequently above the $25 million mark.
In May 2012, Sotheby's sold “Figure Writing Reflected in Mirror,” a 1976 work for $44.8 million.
This beautifully designed and colored vintage Francis Bacon poster is an exceptional historical object from his best era.
Galerie Maeght, the legendary left-bank Parisian gallery, exhibited Bacon's work and published his multiples.
Caviar20 recommends the film Love is the Devil; a dark biography on Bacon's life starring a young Daniel Craig and Tilda Swinton.
