Francis Bacon:Three Studies of Male Back (left panel)
Three Studies of Male Back (left panel), 1967
Lithograph colour
Signed. Ed 47/99
60 x45 cm

This lithograph edition of the left panel from Bacon’s 'Three Studies of Male Back' triptych is a portrait of George Dyer, Bacon’s lover. The nondescript interior space is a device used to focus the viewer’s eye on the human figure, which is facing away, and reflected in a shaving mirror.

Dyer is sitting on a pedestal, and a trapezoidal framework encloses him, in a way trapping his body within strict confines.
