“Three Studies of Lucian Freud” by Francis Bacon
This is the middle panel of the triptych. The other two are quite similar: twisted body, deformed face, bad teeth, on a chair in a vague box of sorts. Since the triptych fetched $190,000,000 CDN in 2015, this single panel comes in at around $65,000,000. This distorts my face a little bit, but who am I to say? Three things I have learned this week: 1) a messy room and mind can be a good thing. 2) brushing and flossing won’t make you rich. 3) triptychs will.
