For their 100 year anniversary, Leonard Joel Auctions in Melbourne have put together a celebratory auction titled “Centum” (Latin for “hundred”) with 100 works by 100 living Australian artists.
They range from masters like John Olsen and Tim Storrier to mid-career artists such as Euan MacLeod and Peter Booth, to younger artists including art market darlings Ben Quilty, Dale Frank and Del Kathryn Barton, as well as a small selection of Aboriginal artists, featuring among others Gabriella Possum, Barbara Weir and Emily Pwerle.
Equally varied are the media on offer: oil, watercolours, photography and sculpture, and if you are after a large canvas, you won’t be disappointed either.
At the moment, art auction houses are not allowed to conduct live auctions during the restrictions imposed by the Australian government to contain the spread of the Corona virus.
Therefore the auction will be held on 5 May 2020 without room bidding, and bidding only by phone and online.
Many artworks are estimated below $10,000, making this a great opportunity to acquire works by noted contemporary Australian artists at budget-friendly prices.
