The 97 lots in Sotheby’s winter auction on 16 August present a beautiful bouquet of some of Australia’s most revered artists.
The front and back cover alone are enough to make you swoon: you are greeted by Arthur Boyd’s “Moby Dick Hill” from 1949 (lot 9), and farewelled by Russell Drysdale’s “Boy with a Lizard”, 1966 (lot 7).
Not surprisingly, both made it into “Dave’s Faves”, and for everything in between, have a closer look at David’s selection.
If you have the opportunity, best view the paintings yourself in Melbourne from 2 to 6 August, at 41 Exhibition Street.
In Sydney, the viewing is held from 10 August to 16 August at 30 & 34 Queen Street, Woollahra.
The auction takes place on Wednesday, 16 August, 6.30 pm at the Intercontinental Hotel, 117 Macquarie Street, Sydney.
