PT365, a blog focused on (guess what) PT just welcomed a new vlogger on-board, Pauline Nordin. The Swedish native, I’m sure, gets her folks to work hard just by her sweetish approach. Love the Megadeth sweatshirt.
Yahoo has a headline that reads:
Bacon masterpiece nets £21 million at London auction
And I think, wow! Now that is some expensive bacon.
Wrong. The bacon was actually Bacon. Francis Bacon. The artist:
A painting by Irish-born artist Francis Bacon has been sold at Christie’s in London for £21.3m (€25.36m).
The Portrait of Henrietta Moraes had been in the hands of a private collector for 30 years and unseen in public for 15 years.
The price exceeded expectations, making the painting the second most valuable work of post-war contemporary art ever sold at the auction house, behind another Bacon work, Triptych, which sold in 2008 for just over £26.3m (€31.3m).
Here is the link where I got the above picture of Francis “Crispy” Bacon’s art. The site is in a Scandinavian language. Like Swedish.
It’s nothing to write home about, the painting. More lousy, fake art. But that other bacon has got me thinking about a BLT masterpiece.
