Francis Bacon, Manner of (British, 1909-1992): Study for Self Portrait, 1979. Oil on unprimed canvas (canvas is primed verso). Signed, titled, and dated verso, unframed.

Francis Bacon (1909-1992) was an Irish-born British artist and one of the most influential figures in 20th-century art. Known for his distinct figurative style, Bacon explored themes of isolation, existentialism, and the human condition. His contribution to art lies in his ability to create haunting and emotionally charged images that challenged traditional notions of representation. Bacon's work continues to inspire and provoke contemplation, making him a significant figure in the history of art.
