Brian Clarke, artist and architectural stained glass designer, met Bacon through John Edwards in 1977. Edwards, Clarke and their mutual friend Robert Fraser, the art dealer, continued a social friendship with Bacon until his death in 1992. In 1998 at the request of Bacon’s sole beneficiary legatee John Edwards, Clarke was appointed sole executor of the Bacon Estate by the High Court. Clarke continues to work internationally in his own artistic right and remains Chairman of the Bacon estate.
