Dave’s Faves: Rah Rah Fizelle at Deutscher + Hackett Art Auction 30 April 2014

In their first auction of the year, Deutscher + Hackett present a beautiful selection of 156 lots.

Their Melbourne 30 April sale promises to be very exciting. Both David and I are very much looking forward to seeing the paintings, sculptures and photography this week in Sydney from 10 to 13 April.

Let’s get straight into Dave’s Faves then:

Lot 2 – Rah Fizelle, Three Nudes c1938, est. $40,000-$60,000. Modernist Heaven Full of Angels
