bringing home bacon

Late last week, it was announced that Francis Bacon’s portrait of Lucien Freud was going up for auction. The owner? Renowned children’s author Roald Dahl.

He bought the painting with the profits he made from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in 1967. The work is projected to sell for $20 million.

So, a lot of Bacons.
