Dave’s Faves for Deutscher + Hackett Auction 27 Nov. 2019

The last auction for the year at Deutscher + Hackett on 27 November features two collections which couldn’t be more different, and wonderfully demonstrate D+H’s brilliant range in their offering.

Lots 24 to 34 contains works from the Mainland Collection of Contemporary Asia Pacific Art; it was assembled with the idea of “The art of humanity: a cultural march through complex landscapes”, with works by eminent contemporary artists hailing from Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Indonesia, China, Vietnam and Thailand, and ready to be discovered by a wider audience in Australia.

Meanwhile, lots 35 to 41 are all by Kate O’Connor, one of our now highly revered artists who had immersed themselves in the Paris of the early 20th century, but struggled to get recognition after their return home. The 6 lots were collected by a close relative of O’Connor during 50 years and represent paintings from all periods of the artist’s career.

Both collections come with illuminating catalogue essays also available on the D+H website and well worth reading.

We will be attending the sale in Melbourne, and would be delighted to assist you with due diligence and pre-purchase reports before the auction and also bid for you on the night.

The viewing in Sydney is held at 16 Goodhope Street, Paddington, from 14 to 17 November.

The viewing in Melbourne is at 105 Commercial Road, South Yarra, from 21 – 27 November.

The auction is held on 27 November 2019, 7 pm, at 105 Commercial Road, South Yarra.
