CNBC's "Power Lunch" has an exclusive first-peek at the portrait today. The 1967 painting is the final in a series of 11 self-portraits by the artist.

Acquired by a private collector from Warhol's primary dealer in 1974, the painting has been in the same private hands until now. It has only recently been authenticated by the Andy Warhol Foundation.

Christie's New York will host the first public viewing in nearly 40 years from January 22-26, before the painting goes up for auction on February 16.

It's expected to sell for approximately $7.5 million dollars.

Watch "Power Lunch" today at 1pm ET to see the Warhol portrait unveiled on live television.
