Project Description

Francis Bacon was born on 28 October 1909 in Dublin.

Cristiano Lovatelli Ravarino is the owner of finished, large-scale artworks, drawings, pastels and collages that were given to him as gifts between 1977 and 1992 by Francis Bacon, as is proven by a deed of gift, dated and signed personally by the Irish painter.
The deed of gift reads as follows: “02/04/1988. I left all my drawings to Cristian Ravarino. I am indebted to him and Italian renaissance culture. I also have the suspicion that in all those years Marlborough Gallery cheated and robbed me thanks to awkward situations created by the gallery itself. With love, Francis Bacon.
