A triptych by Francis Bacon, appearing at auction for the first time, is expected to set a record for a British or Irish work when it leads Christie’s Post War & Contemporary Art Evening Sale in London on Feb. 6. Held by a private collection, “Triptych 1974-77,” above, is the last in a series painted by Bacon (1909-1992) in response to the suicide of his lover, George Dyer, in their room in Paris. Bacon’s “Study From Innocent X” (1962) sold in May for a record $52.6 million.
