Lucian Freud’s Portrait of Francis Bacon Sells for $9,404,346 at Christie’s

One of only two oil portraits of Francis Bacon (1909-1992) ever painted by Lucian Freud (b. 1922) sold at Christie’s auction of Post-War and Contemporary Art for £5,417,250 / $9,404,346 / €6,972,001. The last known remaining oil portrait (the other was stolen from an exhibition in Berlin in 1988), the rarely-seen painting offers a tangible and intimate glimpse into the inspirational friendship of two of the greatest British artists of the 20th century.
