During his lifetime Bacon oversaw the reproduction of thirty-six of his paintings into printed editions. The prototype for this lithograph was a diptych in oil, pastel and dry transfer lettering on canvas made in 1982, now in the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. Bacon was devoted to the work of the Old Masters from his earliest days as a painter and in the early 1980s made a series of paintings based upon major pieces by Ingres. This print is in truly exceptional condition with no marks or creases.


The Artist

Francis Bacon

Francis Bacon was an Irish painter who was famous for his abstract imagery. His paintings were typically figurative images painted in the environment of empty backgrounds or within geometric cages of steel or glass, all painted with flat, monochromatic color palettes. Francis Bacon frequently created series of paintings that depicted the same subject matter over a period of time. This was due to his tendency to focus on the same themes and variations of introspective, somber and existential subjects as his artistic motifs.
