Elaine Wynn recently spent $142.4 million to buy "Three Studies of Lucian Freud" by Francis Bacon. Freud and Bacon were friends and posed for some of each other's most famous paintings.

Geordie Greig had breakfast regularly with Freud in his waning years and details his dedication to his art and his outrageous behavior.
