The first very major auction season is well and truly upon us, with many of Australia’s most enthusiastic and discerning art collectors having to wait some considerable time for the main event.
A big part of this is the Deutscher + Hackett auction on 15 July in Melbourne. A healthy 129 lots include some of the most significant paintings by their respective artists to come on to the market ever.
This includes the cover lot, Fred Williams’ “Hummock in Landscape” (lot 7); Tony Tuckson’s “Swirly Reds and White”, c1964 (lot 6) and lot 14, Hans Heysen with “A Summer’s Day”, c1907.
Lots 32 to 40 are dedicated to the fifth instalment of the Sherman Capsule collection, while almost half, lots 76 – 129, hail from the Peter and Renate Nahum London collection of Aboriginal art.
The artworks can be viewed in Sydney from 2 to 5 July at the D+H Gallery at 16 Goodhope Street, Paddington.
The Melbourne viewing is held from 9 to 14 July at the D+H premises at 105 Commercial Road, South Yarra.
The auction is held on Wednesday, 15 July 2020, 7 pm, at the D+H Gallery at 105 Commercial Road, South Yarra.
