A Christie's auction house worker in London adjusts "Study from Portrait of Pope Innocent X by Velazquez," a Francis Bacon painting. The painting is one of dozens inspired by Velazquez's work, which Bacon described as "a picture I have always been haunted by." More than 15 years after his death, a retrospective of his work heads to London, Madrid and New York.
