Soon to launch is the next Phillips’ 20th Century and Contemporary Art Evening Sale that will take place in NYC, and will include a rarely seen landscape painting by David Hockney titled Nichols Canyon. The incredibly valuable painting was painted in 1980 and is one of the works that signaled the beginning of Hockney’s panoramic series of landscapes.

Nichols Canyon is one of Hockney’s greatest masterpieces—and unequivocally the most important landscape by the artist in private hands. Marking the beginning of his decades-long panoramic landscapes series, it was one of only two monumental works Hockney executed following his return to painting from a brief hiatus spent exploring photography in the 1970s; the other, Mulholland Drive: The Road to the Studio, is held in the permanent collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art,” described Phillips in a statement.

The masterwork is expected to fetch over $30 Million, at Phillips’ 20th Century and Contemporary Art Evening Sale in New York that will commence on December 7. Visit Phillips’s official website to learn more.
