Room With a View depicts the scene from the window of Hockney's studio in Bridlington

The first, Room With a View, depicts Bridlington in Yorkshire where Hockney maintains a studio. It is expected to make £150,000-200,000 ($250,200-333,600).

The other, Tyger, is an abstract work and carries an estimate of £40,000-60,000 ($66,720-100,080).

Neither has ever appeared at auction before.

Penny Day, Bonhams' director of modern British and Irish art, commented: "We are delighted to be offering two significant paintings by such an important British name. Both works are of contrasting date and style, presenting an exciting opportunity for collectors".
