Dave’s Faves for the Bonham auction on 14 November 2018

If you love fine art and auctions, November is going to be a very busy month with 4 major art auctions scheduled, before the long break until March/April 2019.

It is Bonhams who are launching the summer auction season on 14 November, followed by Sotheby’s on 20 November and Menzies on 22 November, and Deutscher + Hackett the week after on 28 November.

We will of course keep up you up to date on all these auctions, and are preparing Dave’s Faves for you.

Bonhams in their 14 November Sydney sale offer 142 lots, including a selection of Aboriginal art and artefacts, and private collections curated by John Cruthers.

Viewings are held in both Melbourne and Sydney: from 2 to 4 November at  Tasma Terrace, 6 Parliament Place, East Melbourne, and in Sydney from 9 to 13 November, 36 – 40 Queen Street.

The auction takes place on 14 November, 6 pm, at 36-40 Queen Street, Woollahra.

You can preview all artworks online at Bonhams.com. If you would like professional and independent advice on a particular lot, get in touch with us before the auction for due diligence and pre-purchase reports. Contact us on phone 02 9977 7764 and email [email protected].
