Dave’s Faves from the Lawson-Menzies auction 19 May 2011

I took time out on Wednesday afternoon to have a good look around the Lawson-Menzies fine art offerings for their sale next Thursday evening. There are 272 lots in this sale – with not only many reasonably priced artworks, but 37 works offered unreserved. Look out for the red square by each work.

Once again, I have picked out my 20 eclectic favourite works. I like them for artist, quality of the work and value for money.

Viewing is on now every day from 10 am to 5.30 pm until including 19 May in Sydney, 12 Todman Ave, Kensington. And you can also view online on the Lawson-Menzies website.

If you are interested in a work or would like us to bid, contact us as soon as possible.
