Esther Grether net woth: Esther Grether is a Swiss businesswoman who has a net worth of $2.2 billion. Esther Grether is one of the biggest individual shareholders in watch maker Swatch Group. Esther Grether has been sitting on the board of Directors of the group ever since 1986. In addition to leading Swatch for over 30 years, Grether also chairs a beauty and health care products company that she succeeded from her late husband in 1975, but she runs the company with her daughter's assistance. In addition to the above, Esther is an avid art collector and her collection of 20th century art is thought to be one of the most high-priced in the world and reportedly contains over 600 pieces by acclaimed artists including Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Paul Cezanne, Francis Bacon and Alberto Giacometti. She is widowed and a mother of two.
Triptych, Maya??June 1973 is a triptych completed in 1973 by the Irish-born artist Francis Bacon (1909a??1992). The oil-on-canvas was painted in memory of Bacon's lover George Dyer who committed suicide on the eve of the artist's retrospective at Paris's Grand Palais, on 24 October 1971. The triptych is a portrait of the moments before Dyer's death from an overdose of pills in their hotel room. Bacon was preoccupied by Dyer's loss in his last twenty years, and painted many works on the event and its aftermath. He admitted to friends that he never fully recovered from the event, and described painting the triptych as an exorcism of his feelings of loss and guilt.
The work is stylistically more static and monumental than Bacon's earlier triptychs of Greek figures and friends heads. It has been described as one of his "supreme achievements" and is generally viewed as his most intense and tragic canvas. Of the three "Black triptychs" Bacon painted when confronting Dyer's death, Triptych, Maya??June 1973 is generally regarded as the most accomplished. In 2006, The Daily Telegraph's art critic Sarah Crompton wrote that "emotion seeps into each panel of this giant canvas ... the sheer power and control of Bacon's brushwork take the breath away".Triptych, Maya??June 1973 was purchased at auction in 1989 by Esther Grether for $6.3 million, then a record for a Bacon painting.
Francis Bacon met George Dyer in 1964 when, he claimed, he caught the young man breaking into his home. Dyer was then about thirty years old and had grown up in the East End of London in a family steeped in crime. He had spent his life drifting between theft, juvenile detention center and jail. Typical of Bacon's taste in men, Dyer was fit, masculine, and not an intellectual.
Bacon's relationships prior to Dyer had all been with older men who were as tumultuous in temperament as the artist himself, but each had been the dominating presence. Peter Lacy, his first lover, would often tear up the yo
