A rare painting by David Bowie has been found in a donation store in North Bay and it’s now going up for auction.

D Head XLVI was found  among some household goods in the store.

The self portrait series by the renowned music icon will be auctioned by Toronto’s Cowley Abbott  online from June 15th thru the 24th.

Bowie enjoyed painting and in the mid ’90’s created a series of 45 works on canvas he titled Dead Heads or D Heads each with a different non-sequential Roman numeral.

It’s expected to fetch between $9,000 and $12,000.

Bowie died in 2016 from cancer. He was 69.

Other notable works in the sale include a European scene owned by the estate of Maple Leafs’ legend Hap Day.
