Underground Bomb Store will headline a sale of 32 works by David Bomberg (1890-1957) at Christie's Modern British and Irish Art sale in London on November 21.
The 1942 painting carries an estimate of £80,000-120,000 ($127,645-191,455) and was commissioned by the War Artists Advisory Committee for a fee of 25 guineas.
The setting captured Bomberg's imagination, and a total of three oil paintings and three drawings were completed - although the committee only accepted his drawings, considering the paintings too avant garde.
One of the paintings, Bomb Store No. 3, sold for £60,000 ($95,734) at Bonhams in 2011.
Bomberg was strongly influenced by the cubists and futurists, and was a leading exponent of the vorticist movement - a style that rejected traditional artistic subjects in favour of geometric abstraction - before the outbreak of the first world war.
East of the Moon (1953), valued at £60,000-80,000 ($95,734-127,643), is another notable lot, featuring the vibrant and thickly applied colour palette for which the artist is best known.
A self portrait from 1931 is also on offer, estimated to bring £50,000-80,000 ($79,777-127,643).
Bomberg was unsuccessful as a portrait artist due to his highly expressive style of painting. He had tried to secure commissions in the early 1930s in order to make a living.
A large percentage of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to Hadassah UK - a charity raising funds for the Hadassah medical centre in Jerusalem.
We have this postcard, signed by Picasso - the father of the cubist movement.
