It has been an extraordinary year for the art market. Commercial art galleries have reported very good sales and even sell-out exhibitions. The auction room has been equally blessed by very strong results.
This has culminated in perhaps the best end-of-year art sales in many years. Confidence in the market from both buyers and sellers is very strong. Smith & Singer’s Sydney auction is offering a magic selection of Australian masters in their 74 lots, including Clarice Beckett, Margaret Preston, Ethel Carrick, John Perceval, Sidney Nolan, Arthur Boyd, Frederick McCubbin, Rupert Bunny – and many more great artworks to whet the appetite.
In Melbourne, the artworks can be viewed from 5 to 8 November at the Smith & Singer premises on 14-16 Collins Street.
The Sydney viewing is on from 11 to 18 November at 30 Queen Street Woollahra, and the auction is held on 18 November, 6.30 pm, at the NCJW Hall at 111 Queen Street, Woollahra.
We will be viewing the works in Sydney as soon as possible, and we will attend the auction on the night. We would be delighted to assist you with due diligence and pre-purchase advice, as well as represent you on the evening to bid.
