This painting, which is actually a series of three painting looks weird, doesn’t it? We see a disfigured man on the first and last painting and a lot of weird objects on all of the three paintings in the series.

This painting was painted in the year of 1976 by a painter called Francis Bacon (not the philosopher). This weird painting was auctioned off at Sotheby’s London on May 14, 2008. At the auction, the owners of the painting – the Moueix family sold it to Roman Abramovich, a billionaire.

  1. You are far away of having traced down the most expansive painting in the world! To my knowledge, this happens to be a work of Paul Gauguin painted in 1892 and entitled “Nafea faa ipoipo” (which in tahitian means “When will you marry”). It was once owned by swiss collector Rudolf Staehelin, who bought it in 1917, and sold in 2015 by his grandson to the emir of Quatar for an alleged price of $300 million.
