Charles Frederick Goldie (1870 – 1947)

Te Aitu Te Irikau (An Arawa Chieftainess), 1919, 27 x 21.5 cm

BACKGROUND:

These portraits of Maori chiefs and elders by New Zealand artist Charles F. Goldie are highly sought after. The highest price ever paid for a painting by Goldie was achieved in April 2016, when “A Noble Relic of a Noble Race” sold for NZ$ 1.4 million incl. buyer’s premium.

This is a very rare work by the artist of a Maori female chief, and the owner was looking to sell it so it could find a new home.

VALUATION & OUTCOME:

We discreetly brokered and handled the sale from A to Z in Australia on behalf our client. The portrait sold for $120,000 incl. buyer’s premium.
