Just so ya know …and you may already


This painting by David Hockney which has been in a private collection from its conception sold at Christie’s auction house last Wednesday for $7.9 million USD.

The woman in the painting is Betty Freeman {who was the owner as well}. It’s titled “Beverly Hills Housewife” and is part of the “California Dreaming” series Hockney created in Los Angeles in the late 60′s.

I was lucky enough to view this {in digital photo form} in it’s original hanging place along with the rest of the private collection. And let me tell you, the house was off the hook cool. Untouched decor since the 1960′s. I wish I could post the photos here.
