Francis BACON Study for the Human Body, 1981  (1981)
Logique de la sensation after Study for the Human Body 1981, an original offset lithograph in colours on Arches wove paper after the painting of the same name, the print was included in the publication Francis Bacon Logique de la sensation by Gilles Deleuze. Signed in pencil and numbered from the limited edition of 150. Published by Éditions de la Diférence, Paris and printed by Arts Litho, Paris with their blindstamp to lower left corner. Referenced in Tacou 36 and Sabatier, 28. Printed to the sheet edges, as issued.
In very good condition with strong, bright colours and has never been framed or displayed. A small handling crease to the paper towards the lower right corner and a barely noticeable bend to the top right corner.
An absolutely classic and instantly recognisable signed Francis Bacon print with its unusual graphical red arrows jumping out from soft background colours. It’s going to look stunning framed at this neat size - float mounted perhaps?
Francis Bacon’s visceral, macabre portraits express the widespread anxieties of post-war Europe and the artist’s own personal demons. He took inspiration from artists such as Van Gogh and Velazquez, translating their dramatic compositions for the chaotic modern age. Bacon’s own violent relationships served as a darker, more personal reference point.
