Estate of the late Max Germaine

Art Brokerage

BACKGROUND

We were entrusted with brokering the sale of select works from the estate of Max Germaine, who is most notably known for his encyclopedia on artists and galleries in Australia.

Valuation & Outcome

Works by David Boyd, Adrian Feint and a juvenilia work by the young Grace Cossington-Smith found new homes appreciative of the superb provenance.

This expressive and somewhat surrealist works by Adrian Feint achieved a sale price of $20,000 incl. buyer’s premium, much to the delight of the owner.
