“Glen Helen Landscape”, c1957, 25 x 35 cm

BACKGROUND:

Albert Namatjira’s watercolours of Central Australia remain among the most sought after in the auction room.

VALUATION & OUTCOME:

We have assisted with the sale of numerous watercolours by the master of the Hermannsburg School over the years, but this example had it all: the composition and colours are just magical. It went well above the $20,000-$25,00 estimate, selling for a very pleasing price to the seller at $36,000 incl. buyer’s premium.
