The painting shown here is "The Land of Retinal Delights" by Robert Williams. It is oil on canvas and was painted in 1968. Williams was inspired by the First Annual Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 to create a psychedelic masterpiece to capture the the spirit of the times. The painting was at the MovieWorld Museum until the late 1970s. This arresting piece of modern art is estimated to sell for $250,000 to $500,000. It's an ambitious price for a piece that it outside the Sotheby's/Christie's universe of what is considered "investment art." It would be great to see this painting sell for a hefty chunk of change.
