Bacon Scraps Sale

A month ago I reported that the family of late amateur artist Lewis Todd had found that some of his daubs had been painted on scraps of canvas discarded by Francis Bacon (CLICK). Shown are the Six Scraps of Discarded Work from Bacon's 1950s Screaming Pope. Guilford auction house Ewbank’s estimated their value at about £100,000. Yesterday, on the second day of Ewbank’s sale, these Bacon scraps went under the hammer for a total of nearly £46,000 ($70,000) (CLICK). What a farce!
