Self Portrait, by Lucien Freud. I have looked at this to portray an image of Freud without the stretched and distorted effects applied by Bacon, in a series of three paintings.

Lucian Freud first met Bacon around 1943 and they became close friends. Freud painted a portrait of Bacon (1952) and Bacon produced several portraits of Freud, some of which were based on the series of photographs taken by John Deakin. (The Estate of Francis Bacon | Bacon's World).
