The Bonhams sale of Important Australian Art will proceed in Sydney on 24 August, with a live simulcast in Melbourne. Virtual viewings of the artworks will be available.
Continuing the massive increase in interest for late 19th and early 20th century female artists, Bonhams begin their auction with artworks by Dorrit Black, Janet Cumbrae-Stewart, Clarice Beckett, May Gibbs and Florence Fuller.
There are some charming Victorian pictures by John Longstaff, H.J. Johnstone and George Lambert, as well as a generous mix of modern Australian and indigenous artworks among the 112 lots on offer.
