Francis Bacon von [with] John Russell (Monograph, hand signed and inscribed twice by Francis Bacon), 1972

Hardback monograph with dust jacket (hand signed and inscribed in ink twice)

Hand signed and inscribed by Francis Bacon twice on the title page and also on page 114

10 1/2 × 8 × 1 1/4 inches


Francis Bacon's paintings sell for many millions of dollars, and a monograph like this, hand signed and warmly inscribed, not once but twice by the artist, is a valuable and desirable collectors item. The inscription on the title page says:

For Charlie
with all best wishes
Francis Bacon

The second inscription, on page 114 underneath an image of Bacon's painting, says:

All my best wishes
and love
Francis Bacon

These inscriptions, especially one underneath an image of a painting, can be removed and framed separately. Alternatively, the book can be framed in a shadow box, displayed on a mantle shelf, or cherished and presented on a coffee table or bookshelf. The possibilities for exhibiting are numerous.
