Dave’s Faves for the Deutscher + Hackett Auction 4 May 2016

It’s a pretty exciting time auction-wise. I could easily have picked 30 Faves from the latest Deutscher and Hackett catalogue of Australian and International Fine Art.

There is a multitude of riches, with some exceptional works of art in this diverse offering. I particularly enjoy the extensive range of international art available by world renowned art giants Andy Warhol, Henry Moore, Robert Motherwell, Roy Lichtenstein and Lucian Freud among the 147 lots.

The auction is held on Wednesday 4 May 2016 in Melbourne, and you can view the paintings personally at:

Sydney: 21 – 24 April, 55 Oxford Street, Surry Hills

Melbourne: 28 April – 3 May, 105 Commercial Road, South Yarra

We will attend the auction, and we can assist you with any questions before buying, independent pre-purchase and due diligence reports, and bidding on the night. Contact us on 02 9977 7764 or [email protected] to discuss your interest and needs further.
