We are now inviting consignments to our Australian Art auction, which will be held online from 29 November to
8 December 2016

In our Australian Art auction last September, Tom Roberts’s previously unrecorded Portrait of Louis Abrahams realised £314,500, over 10 times its low pre-sale estimate. This outstanding result demonstrated the strength of the market for Australian Art – particularly for works with distinguished provenance never before seen at auction – and we are now inviting consignments to our 2016 sale.

This year, our Australian Art auction will be held online, from 29 November to 8 December. We are excited to bring our renowned expertise and emphasis on quality to a new sale platform. 

Artists of particular interest include Conrad Martens, Eugene von Guerard, John Glover, Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts, Frederick McCubbin, Emanuel Phillips Fox, Hans Heysen, Margaret Preston, Grace Cossington Smith, Roy de Maistre, William Dobell, Russell Drysdale, Sidney Nolan, Ian Fairweather, Arthur Boyd, Fred Williams, Brett Whiteley and Jeffrey Smart.
