Study for Portrait, 1971


In the residually Aubusson carpet the pink and pistachio palette is further diffused, to make a more abstract foil for the figure in the spare, elegant setting. The painting of the suited figure is a tour de force. Patches of colour (and white) in curved facets erupt from the grey, and the mixing of colours is notably subtle. Francis Bacon: Catalogue Raisonné, 2016, p. 976.
