Lawson-Menzies at Kensington are offering some 320 works on 16th August.

We attended the viewing yesterday and David selected some of his favourite works, commonly referred to as Dave’s Faves:

Girolamo_Nerl Hilder_Sydney_Harbour Blackman_Barbara
Lot 6, G. Nerli Lot 116, J.J. Hilder Lot 41, C. Blackman

Lot 6 – Girolamo Nerli, Young Woman with an Umbrella, est. $3,000-5,000. Reminiscent of Melbourne’s 9 by 5 exhibition of 1889

Lot 17 – David Boyd, Judge Adrift (trial series), 1963, est. $7,000-9,000. We’ll let you be the judge of this one

Lot 39 – Max Dupain, Sunbaker 1937, est. $12,000-16,000. Australia’s most famous photo. This image has sold for as much as $ 35,750 incl. b.p. in 2005 – what a bargain!

Lot 40 – Brett Whiteley, Untitled (Nude Study), 1976, est. $12,000-16,000. A few simple lines to perfection

Lot 41 – Charles Blackman, Portrait of Barbara, c. 1960, est. $12,000-16,000. Now this is a Blackman with class

Lot 42 – John Brack, Reaching, 1973. The Perfect Olympic Gift

Lot 87 – David Larwill, The Inventor, 1994, est. $3,000-5,000. I am glad he invented this one

Lot 93 – Rosalie Gascoigne, Across Town, est. $5,000-8,000. Less is more

Lot 102 – Howard Arkley, Zappo Head 1996, est. $2,500-3,500. Vital

Lot 116 – J.J. Hilder, Sydney Harbour from Fort Macquarie, 1904, est. $3,000-5,000. If you are ever going to buy a J.J. Hilder, let it be this one – superb image

Lot 188 – Peter Booth, Drawing (Man with Black Background), 2009, est. $1,500-2,000. Do not bid on this one – it’s mine

Lot 224 – Margaret Olley, Chinese New Year, est. $4,500-6,500. Good Golly it’s an Olley

Lot 225 – Blamire Young, Landscape at Dusk, c. 1925, est. $1,200-1,800. A Young work painted when he was older
