Product Description

Frances Bacon (1909-1992) – Personnage Couche 1966Francis Bacon- Lithographic poster - Galerie Maeght - 1966

This beautifully designed and colored vintage lithographic 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.

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 meared 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.
