Jeremy Irons Brings Francis Bacon’s Words to Life

Jeremy Irons Brings Francis Bacon’s Words to Life

Last year, Sotheby’s shared remarkable video stories. One of them was this short video where Academy Award-winning actor Jeremy Irons brought to life excerpts from the artist’s interviews with David Sylvester and revealed Bacon’s own thoughts about his celebrated self-portraits.

Two Studies for a Self-Portrait, painted by the artist in 1970, sold for nearly $35 million during Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening Auction in New York on 11 May 2016.

Enjoy the video.
