Painting May Fetch $70 Million at Christie’s Sale
A portrait of Francis Bacon’s lover may be worth as much as $70 million at Christie’s in May. The triptych “Three Studies for a Portrait of George Dyer” was painted in 1963, soon after the two men met. It depicts three versions of Dyer’s twisted face, each on a separate, small, black canvas.

The seller is Francis Lombrail, a French actor who has owned it for 25 years. The art may turn out to be a savvy investment as Christie’s is estimating it to be worth around $50 – $70 million. Back then he had to sell most of the art he owned at that time to pay for this painting.
