Entirely self-taught, Francis Bacon emerged in 1945 as a significant force in British painting. Bacon’s oeuvre was dominated by emotionally charged depictions of the human body. In the 1970s, Bacon painted a series of triptychs in response to the tragic death of his lover in 1971. Metropolitan Triptych was the last work the artist made before his major retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1975. A lithograph of the central panel of this work will be highlighted in the upcoming ReDesigned auction, presented by John Moran Auctioneers.
This sale of over 150 lots will include categories such as decorative art, furniture, and ceramics. A lithograph from Czech artist Alphonse Mucha is among the lots of interest. Rendered in pale pastels and the Art Nouveau style, much of Mucha’s work depicts beautiful young women in flowing garments amidst flowers. The Art Nouveau style can be seen in his work Eveil du Matin, available in this event. An abstract painting from Marcel Janco and a Classical sculpture from Nguyen Tuan will be offered as well.
