Description

Francis Bacon – Design for Chateau Mouton Rothchild 1990 premier cru – Lithograph.

Bacon was asked to design a label for the latest vintage of Chateau Mouton Rothchild, and though the commission was unpaid it was welcomed by the artists, who were rewarded with crates of rare wine. Bacons first attempt was rejected as impractical and the picture is in an Isreali museum.. But he was asked again by Baronesse Philippine de Rothchild and he delivered a small painting to her and put it in her shopping bag at her hotel near Harrods.

The poignant picture shows an outstretched hand clasping a glass of wine;the poignancy lies in the knowledge that this was probably his last work.

Incidently this particular vintage is outstanding having reached its perfection at the beginning of the next century.
