A desk made for Patrick White by Francis Bacon in his brief stint as a furniture maker and Simon Starling's reworkings of the desk (a copy, a copy of a copy, a copy of a copy of a copy )for the AlterModern show at the Tate. You can see one of Seth Price's Silhouette pieces in the background <3!
'I got to know Francis when he designed some furniture for my Eccleston Street flat. I like to remember his beautiful pansy-shaped face, sometimes with too much lipstick on it' - Patrick White on Francis Bacon
