Lot 5150
This lot consists of a HAND SIGNED and Numbered Fine Art Print on paper, Hand Signed "Francis Bacon" and numbered '50/100'. In the center of the composition, a man sits on a blood-red disc, surrounded by glass walls and mirrors. His face is blurred, almost clown-like, and he stares straight ahead into the reflection of a decidedly more jagged, haunted face. The entire composition has the definite air of a bad dream, and draws more questions from the mind the longer it is observed. Small details emerge slowly: the mysterious pullchain, the background detail of a red car's headlight. Overall excellent condition. Image is depressed into the paper indicating plate marks. It is all done in the grotesque Expressionist style of Modern Artist Francis Bacon (British-Irish, 1902-1992). Overall measures 8.5" x 12".
