Francis Bacon was a good friend to Ron Thomas, who worked at the Marlborough Gallery in London over a period of 18 years, sending him cheques for his family at Christmas and giving him the present slashed canvas from his studio. The present work was examined by the Francis Bacon Research Project in November 2011. Copies of the reports with analysis dated 13/07/2012 and 14/01/2014 are included with the present lot.
