Exceptional Day of Art Appraisals in Newport on 21 June

An exceptional day of art valuations was held at Newport Artworks on 21 June. Gary Witton, owner of Newport Artworks, commented: ‘There was a constant stream of people from 11 am until 3 pm, with many seeking advice on framing and restoration of works. ’ David Hulme, director of Banziger Hulme Fine Art Consultants said: ‘Unusually, a number works by Sidney Nolan were brought in for appraisal by different people. I am always amazed by the diversity of works that people have in art collections on the Northern Beaches.’

The appraisal days are always a lot of fun and a find this time was an unknown work by Albert Henry Fullwood (1863 – 1930). It is a major work by the artist, measuring 62 x 122 cm. The scene is of a windmill in Tasmania, painted in 1897. Fullwood painted with Tom Roberts and Arthur Streeton at Sirius Cove on Sydney Harbour and helped establish the NSW Society of Artists,  before he moved to the US in 1900 and on to England in 1901, exhibiting with the Royal Academy in London and the Paris Salons. During World War I, he was commissioned to paint on the Western Front for the Australian War Memorial.
