WHAT'S HOT IN MODERN OIL PAINTINGS
 
  Francis Bacon oil paintings are surging in popularity Christie's London sold one in June for $4.4 million, well in excess of its $2.7 million auction estimate.

Buying a Bacon is out of the question for most people. But other hot and more affordable artists are being widely sought by collectors. They include:

 * Lesser-known abstract and expressionist artists from the post-World War II era, such as Ralph Ducasse and Erle Loran.

 * Modern expressionists such as Jef Friboulet.

 * Armin Hansen, an early 20th century painter of marine and fishing scenes.

The good news for collectors is that most of these works are selling for around $1,000.

It's not the same old expensive pieces. They're not big names, but they're good pieces.
