Santa Monica Auctions has been holding exclusively Fine Art auctions in Santa Monica since 1984. Various works of all media from across the globe are auctioned off, many times at a small fraction of the retail value of an artwork. Works include: paintings, prints, multiples, photographs and sculpture.
The 2017 Auction Highlights include a rare, never before seen unique work by Richard Pettibone. Acclaimed for his “pocket-sized” appropriations of modernist masters, Pettibone is highly sought after, now more than ever. This unique work is a rare “combine” which combines multiple modern master works within one miniature canvas - Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella and two Andy Warhol infamous images. Another highlight piece is a beautiful self portrait by Chuck Close, featuring the artist in his unique style of pixelated spots rendering a self portrait of the artist in a yellow raincoat. 100% of the hammer sale price will go to the Compassionate Touch Network based in New Mexico, who are committed to promoting mental health literacy for youth, teens and adults utilizing eduction and the arts. These museum quality works are amongst other masterworks by artists such as: Raymond Pettibon, Robert Rauschenberg, David Hockney, Pablo Picasso, Chuck Close, Alex Prager, Larry Bell, Christopher Wool, Ed Moses, Man Ray and many others.
