Artist David Hockney, renowned for his rare masterpieces and irreplaceable contribution to the world of art, is once again making headlines.
The 82-year-old artist's artwork "Nichols Canyon," which is considered one of his most important landscape painting to ever appear in any auction, went on to be viewed on Thursday before going under he hammer.
The landscape, which is estimated to sell for $35 million, is the artist's first mature landscape.
It marked the artist's return to California and to painting following a hiatus in the 1970s during which he focused on photography.
The painting's counterpart "Mulholland Drive: The Road to the Studio", is currently being held in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
It is a very rare and pretty unique painting in his career, according to Phillips Global Chairwoman Cheyenne Westphal.
"The canyon was very much part of his daily life. He was living up the hill and driving down the hill to his studio and this journey every day, several times, became part of his self, as he says."
"He started it with a wonderful squiggly line and then created this extraordinary California landscape around it with the swimming pool, the houses, just the lusciousness of it all."
