What is Bacon worth? You might notice the capital ‘B’ here. We’re not talking about the roll-in-the-mud version, but the raw, powerful genius that was the twentieth century artist Francis Bacon. Now highly sought-after at auctions in London and New York, Bacon’s work is not difficult to spot. Just think of a picture of a face or a body, captured at high speed while turning. That is essentially the kind of contortion that Bacon evoked in his tortured figures.
The book of interviews with Bacon, signed by the artist and available on the site now brings to mind the artist’s work, and his portrayal of himself. Bacon was not the most media friendly artist, nor was he universally admired. His homosexuality bothered many during the Britain of his era, and he did not immediately find success in art. As such, the rarity value of this piece (the seller has found only 2 other signed copies) is very much in line with the idiosyncrasy of Bacon’s life.
