Bringing home the... ART.
The sale of Triptych, 1976, could break the current record for the artist's work, the pounds 27 million paid for Study For Innocent X in 1962.
The piece is being sold by a private European collector who has owned the Bacon since it was first exhibited in Paris in 1977.
The three-panelled picture depicts a headless human form surrounded by three vultures and flanked by two portraits of disfigured human faces.
Bacon used Ancient Greek legends as inspiration for the work.
