A selection of portraits by Dublin-born artist Francis Bacon are about to go on display at the Tate Britain gallery in London.
The exhibition, including Three studies for a Self-Portrait, is a major celebration heralding the artist's centenary in 2009.
Three Studies for a Crucifixion is part of the exhibition which brings together the most important works from each period of Bacon's life.
Bacon started his career as an interior designer, before beginning to paint around 1928.
The Tate says the collection is a "treat" for Bacon fans and a "perfect introduction for people less familiar with his work".
The display will run from 11 September to 4 January. All portraits are courtesy of the Estate of Francis Bacon. All Rights Reserved, DACS 2008.
