Lots with this symbol indicate that a party has provided Sotheby’s with an irrevocable bid on the lot that will be executed during the sale at a value that ensures that the lot will sell. The irrevocable bidder, who may bid in excess of the irrevocable bid, will be compensated based on the final hammer price in the event he or she is not the successful bidder or may receive a fixed fee in the event he or she is the successful bidder.

Catalogue Note

"Raymond Pettibon's surfer images imagine an ecstatic peace, of being swept away from oneself in some flight with only the wing and a prayer of survival as one's pilot. He draws this idealized space for what it is, not a tangible reality but a dream, taking us to that magical place where you might just find yourself when the horizon line is lost and disorientation is your only compass. What makes these works truly about the surf is more than mere subject matter; it is their rhythm, the insistent up and down, the in and out, the disillusion of what it means to be inside or outside. And there in the spume, or hovering above it all where the sea in veils and shrouds approximate the clouds, are the words like desperate messages slipped out of their bottles..." 

Carlo McCormick, “Waveform: Riding the Sublime to the Song of the Sea,” in Exh. Cat., New York, Venus over Manhattan, Raymond Pettibon: Surfers 1985-2015, 2015, p. 14
