2017 starts early and well for art auction aficionados, as Menzies hold the first fine art sale of the year already next week in Melbourne.
The auction date is set for Thursday, 9 February, and the viewing in Melbourne is from 2 to 8 February at Stonington Mansion, 336 Glenferrie Road, Malvern.
We’ll be attending the auction and would be delighted to assist you with independent advice on these or any other lots that you may be interested in, and we can also bid and manage the buying process for you. Happy to speak further with you.
The catalogue contains 147 lots, from colonial, modern and contemporary Australian and to international rarities, and David has picked no less than 20 for his “Dave’s Faves”.
