Bonhams Los Angeles is set to launch its Post-War and Contemporary Art auction this February 19. Leading the sale is a rare painting from 1993 by Raymond Pettibon. Named No Title (Surfer in the Great Wave), the artwork is a double-sided acrylic on plexiglas painting that measures a sprawling four by eight feet. The painting has a pre-sale estimate of $500,000 – $800,000 USD.

“Bonhams consistently seeks to offer not just the finest names in contemporary art, but also uniquely special objects. Coming to auction for the first time, this incredibly important painting has not been exhibited publicly since its creation. Not only is it historically significant to the artist’s overall body of work, but viewed from any angle, it is absolutely breathtaking. We’re thrilled to have this visual treasure leading our upcoming sale,” said head of sale, Laura Bjorstad, in a statement.

Additional highlights of the forthcoming auction include a wire sculpture by the late artist Ruth Asawa called Untitled (S.788, Hanging Sphere) that is valued between $35,000-$55,000 USD as well as still life painting by John Register from 1978 entitled Oxnard Pizza with an estimate of $60,000-$80,000 USD.
