In their summer auction in Sydney, Bonhams presents an eclectic mix of 88 lots, ranging from indigenous bark paintings to the Australian impressionists and to abstract paintings (Tony Tuckson, Elizabeth Cummings, Ildiko Kovacs), ending boldly with works by contemporary artists hardly tested in the auction room before (Heather B. Swann, Dave Teer, Sarit Cohen).
