Francis Bacon Follow Masque mortuaire de William Blake (after Study of Portrait based on The Life Mask of William Blake 1955) 1991 Lithograph in colours, on BFK Rives paper, with full margins. I. 60 x 50 cm (23 5/8 x 19 5/8 in.) S. 80 x 60 cm (31 1/2 x 23 5/8 in.) Signed and numbered 9/60 in pencil (there were also some artist's proofs), published by Michel Archimbaud for the Librairie Séguier, Paris, framed.
Literature Bruno Sabatier 27 Alexandre Tacou 29 Artist Bio Francis Bacon Irish-British • 1909 - 1992 Follow Francis Bacon was a larger-than-life figure during his lifetime and remains one now more than ever. Famous for keeping a messy studio, and even more so for his controversial, celebrated depictions of papal subjects and bullfights, often told in triptychs, Bacon signified the blinding dawn of the Modern era. His signature blurred portraits weren't murky enough to stave off his reputation as highly contentious—his paintings were provocations against social order in the people's eye. But, Bacon often said, "You can't be more horrific than life itself." In conversation with yet challenging the conventions of Modern art, Bacon was known for his triptychs brutalizing formalist truths, particularly Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion , which Bacon debuted in London in 1944, and Three Studies of Lucian Freud , which became famous when it set the record for most expensive work of art at auction at the time it sold in 2013.
