Francis Bacon prints led by $67,500 triptych at Artcurial

On December 2 in Paris, Artcurial will offer the Alexandre Tacou collection of Francis Bacon prints, led by Second Version of the Triptych 1944-1988.

Francis Bacon prints
The triptych features the three biggest lithographs of Bacon's work ever made

Second Version of the Triptych, each of which is an artist proof signed by Bacon, represents the three biggest lithographs of his work ever produced. The trio is valued at $54,070-67,588.

The auction follows the November 12 Christie's sale of Bacon's Three Studies of Lucian Freud, which set a record for any work of art at auction of $142.2m. Christie's also held a sale dedicated to Bacon's prints in October, which was the first to have offered the complete collection.
