About

One of two portraits that Bacon did of his friend Michel Leiris (the French Surrealist writer and anthropologist) this 1978 painting showcases the colorful and blob-like profile of Leiris against a dark background. His wrinkled features, such as his wide eyes, mouth, and triangular nose, seemingly melt off of his face. Interestingly, Leiris' distant left ear becomes attached to his nose thanks to a thin strand of white that Bacon incorporates into his portrait.

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free mat board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like a wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
