Lot 1: BACON, FRANCIS - INSCRIBED TO GEORGE DYER CAT A signed presentation copy of...

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: BACON, FRANCIS - INSCRIBED TO GEORGE DYER CAT A signed presentation copy of the printed catalogue "Francis Bacon: Recent Paintings", Marlborough Fine Art, July-August 1965, inscribed to George Dyer, the artist's lover and subject of the first portrait included in the catalogue. The inscription is in blue ink on the half-title: "To George Dyer, with love and best wishes, Francis Bacon". Some minor creasing and offsetting to this leaf. Catalogue runs to 20 pages in original printed wrappers (some creasing and wear to cover). Colour and b illustrations, including a folding plate at rear (with some tears and creases). Overall size of catalogue approx. 225 x 210mm (slim 4to). Legend maintains that Bacon first met Dyer when the latter was caught breaking into the artist's studio. The pair became lovers and Dyer inspired some of his finest work in the 60s. Dyer famously committed suicide in Paris on the eve of Bacon's major retrospective there in 1971, thus leading to a darker turn in Bacon's work culminating in the 1973 triptychs depicting Dyer's death. Provenance: Gifted by George Dyer to Nosher Powell, professional boxer, stuntman, bodyguard and man about town in Soho, London.

Description: DADD, RICHARD, THE CLIQUE AND OTHER ARTISTS COL The columnised signatures of the attendees at The Society of British Artists exhibition, most of them being London art world figures, Suffolk Street Gallery, London, 1842. The 173 signatures are written beneath one another over the eight sides of four 31 x 9cm pieces of paper, placed in windowpane mounts side by side in two pairs of folio leaves removed from an album. Aged and lightly-creased. Several individuals sign on more than one occasion, including Richard Dadd, as "Richard. Dadd" and "Richd Dadd". These signatures were written only a few months prior to Dadd setting off on the tour of the Mediterranean where he would first exhibit signs of madness. Also signed by fellow members of the Clique (the informal sketching society set up in reaction to the Royal Acedemy schools) Augustus Egg, William Powell Frith and Henry Nelson O'Neil - and what may be JMW Turner (? - viewing recommended). Provenance: Apparently from the papers of the landscape painter Joesph William Allen (1803-52), president of the Society of British Artists and drawing master of the City of London School.
