Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA) is pleased to announce that an early Raymond Pettibon drawing with extensive exhibition history will go to auction this October. Untitled (What was, morally speaking, behind her veil?) from 1987 is being sold by the original owner and will trade hands for the first time this fall.
This important work was originally purchased the year it was made from Zero One Gallery in Los Angeles and since then has been included in four solo shows, two of which were traveling exhibitions. Over the past two decades, this work has been shown in major international institutions including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, The Drawing Center, New York, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, and Centre Pompidou, Paris.
