Menzies’ Winter Auction in Sydney on 9 August incorporates some very interesting collections.
Lots 1 – 20 and then again lots 81 – 114 are from the Sandra and Peter Geyer collection of contemporary art, and it is a cracking offering: sculpture, photography, works on paper, oils, Australian and international by some of the greatest names in contemporary art – Antony Gormley, William Kentridge, Bill Henson, Noel McKenna, Tracey Moffatt, the list goes on. Plus they come with the excellent provenance of some of Australia’s premier contemporary art galleries.
Another bonus is the lower entry point for contemporary art: estimates for some works start from just $2,000.
