'Francis Bacon (from our Brief Encounter)'

22" x 16" (56 x 41cm)

In one of the last paintings Chris Gollon ever painted, the artist remembers a strange encounter. In oil on canvas, Gollon remembers it here, an evening in South Kensington in the 1980s when a very sloshed Francis Bacon came tottering and zig-zagging toward him. Bacon almost fell under a taxi cab, had Chris not pulled at his sleeve to just keep him on the pavement, and so helped him totter off and on into the London night......
London-born British artist Chris Gollon (1953 - 2017) was a very established and critically-acclaimed name in European painting, with many solo museum shows and museum acquisitions, including the British Museum. For further details on the recent books published on his work, public commissions, press coverage, visit the artist's official information website: IAP Fine Art has exclusivity on Gollon's work, and we help collectors begin or expand their collections, and we also work with museums and cathedrals with regard to exhibitions and acquisitions.
