Francis Bacon: Three Studies of Lucian Freud


Couldn't resist popping into Christie's to see this triptych. I love Bacon's unique vision and distinctive take on the human condition in his paintings, and also the way in which he expressed this in his manipulation of the painted surface. So glad I managed to catch this great series of paintings before they go off to auction in New York next month, and no doubt disappears from public view into a private collection.
