Figures with Mirror, 1974, 85 x 50 cm

BACKGROUND:

We might call George Keyt the Picasso of Sri Lanka. His work is very highly sought by Sri Lankan art collectors both at home and within the ex-pat community. In Australia, Keyt’s work is very rare.

The South Australian-based owner had inherited not one, but two paintings by artist. We brokered the sale of this particularly delightful example by the Sri Lankan master on their behalf, and it sold for $24,000 incl. buyer’s premium in Australia.
