Bacon’s “Version No. 2 of Lying Figure With Hypodermic Syringe.”



The most important works he collected were contemporary, to be sold the evening of Nov. 14. By far the star of the group, which includes works by Damien Hirst, Lichtenstein, Basquiat, Gerhard Richter and Carl Andre, is a 1968 Francis Bacon, “Version No. 2 of Lying Figure With Hypodermic Syringe,’’ in which Bacon took one of the most familiar subjects in art — the reclining female nude — and painted it as a tortured soul, as he often did. It is expected to sell for $9 million to $12 million.
