The Frieze Art Fair previews on October 14. London-based dealer Gerard Faggionato will be offering Bacon’s 1988 painting of a male nude, “Study from the Human Body after Muybridge,” with a price of $9 million at the satellite Pavilion of Art & Design London fair. The painting is from the estate of the artist, which Faggionato represents.
