    Additional Info : Title: Triptych Inspired by of Aeschylus L\'Orestie d\'Eschyle. Literature: Francis Bacon: Estampes - Collection Alexandre Tacou Number 12. Bruno Sabatier, “Francis Bacon Oeuvre Graphique Catalogue Raissone Number 16. Note: The prototype for this work is displayed in the Astrup Fearnley Collection, Oslo, Norway. It is a very large Triptych, Oil on Canvas, with each panel measuring 198 by 147.5 inches. The Orestia is a trilogy of Greek tragedies written by Aechylus in the 5th Century BC conserning the murder of Agamemnon by his wife Clytemnestra, the murder of Clytemnestra by Orestes, their son, the trial of Orestes, the end of the curse on the House of Atreus and pacification of the Erinyer. The Trilogy—consisting of Agamemnon, The Libration Bearers and The Eumenides, shows how the Greek gods interacted with the characters and influenced their decisions pertaining to events and disputes. The cycle of murderous revenge followed by bloody revenge organised and piloted by the gods was a theme fascinating to Francis Bacon who shows this visceral story in graphic detail in our triptych. Published by: Editions de la Difference, Paris. Printed by: Arts Litho, Paris.\

    Francis Bacon

    Francis Bacon. 1909-1992. Bacon was an Irish artist and one of the most unique, engaging figurative painters to emerge during the post-war period. His grotesque imagery—contorted limbs, howling mouths agape, blood—served as method of exploring nihilism and death at a time when Europe had been repeatedly savaged by war. Inspired by both the Old Masters and Surrealism, Bacon produced several compositions based on the work of other painters, notably including his arresting Study After Velazquez’s Portrait of Pope Innocent X (1953). In this iconic work, Bacon transforms Diego Velazquez’s classic portrait into a screaming, terrifying figure. “I feel ever so strongly that an artist must be nourished by his passions and his despairs,” he once said. “The feelings of desperation and unhappiness are more useful to an artist than the feeling of contentment, because desperation and unhappiness stretch your whole sensibility.” Born on October 28, 1909 in Dublin, Ireland, the self-taught artist moved to London to escape a hostile home life. Bacon became part of the local art scene in the British capital, which included his friends Lucian Freud, Isabel Lambert, and John Deakin. After the death of Bacon’s lover in 1972, his work became even more personalized, with a renewed focus on mortality. In 1963, a retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum in New York brought international prestige, which continued until his death on April 28, 1992 in Madrid, Spain. Today, his works are held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hugh Lane in Dublin, and the Albertina in Vienna, among others.
