#13 – “Triptych, 1976” – Francis Bacon – $85.5 million
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.
