Friend who inherited Bacon’s £11m fortune went on 11-year spending spree

Despite a reputation for being difficult, Francis Bacon did – in death at least – live up to his celebrated toast of “Champagne for my real friends, real pain for my sham friends“.

So it’s hard to know what the artist would have made of the behaviour of John Edwards, the man to whom he left his £11m fortune when he died in 1992.
