Dave’s Faves for the Deutscher + Hackett Art Auction 10 May 2017

In their autumn auction on 10 May in Sydney, Deutscher + Hackett offer their signature broad mix of 132 artworks – ranging from the rare early Australian colonial (August Earle lot 69), to international greats such as Edvard Munch (lot 114), taking in edgy contemporary works such as lot 23 by Paul McCarthy, and Aboriginal masters like Emily Kame Kngwarreye (lot 79).

The sale features also the third part of the Gene and Brian Sherman Capsule collection of modern and contemporary artists (lots 12 to 24). And among the last 30 or so lots, there are a good number of very reasonably priced works on paper by both international and Australian artists, with estimates under $2,000.

It will be rewarding viewing in Sydney from 4 to 9 May at the Deutscher + Hackett premises at 55 Oxford Street (corner Pelican Street), and online at the Deutscher + Hackett website.

The auction will take place on Wednesday, 10 May 2017, 7 pm, at the National Art School, Sydney, Forbes Street.
