Important works by Boyd, Blackman, Namatjira, Gill, Heysen and Arkley will go under the hammer on Saturday 26 November 2022 at Abbeys Auctions
Over 100 unique pieces of art by highly collectable Australian artists will be auctioned live online by Abbeys Auctions on Saturday 26 November 2022. The catalogue is online now for viewing and bidding.
Matthew Fiedorowicz of Abbeys Auctions has curated this collection to present a quality selection of diverse and highly collectable Australian artists.
“This auction comprises original artworks from Charles Blackman, Norman Lindsay and Hans Heysen amongst artworks from respected indigenous artists, including Albert Namatjira, Judy Watson, David Malangi and Minnie Pwerle”, remarked Matthew.
“In addition, we have a beautiful and instantly recognisable piece by Howard Arkley called “Yellow House” from a private Melbourne collection and David Boyd’s “The Old King Has Fallen”, which is from the Estate of ex-Federal Minister Peter Howson. There are many statement pieces that will add a wow factor to any home or office environment.”
The auction includes works from three generations of Boyd painters – including the aforementioned David Boyd, Theodore Penley Boyd’s “Morning Drink” and Jamie Boyd’s “Williamstown Dockyards. It’s unusual to have these artists of this calibre, let alone the same family, together in the same auction.
For enthusiasts of turn of the century colonial Australian paintings, two of S.T. Gill’s works: “Jester” and “The Bushman’s Hut”, Hans Heysen’s “The Shed Near The Gully” and “Dusk Through The Trees”, and Frederick George Reynold’s “Boys Playing Archery” are timely depicted representations of Australian life.
“The average prices of paintings sold at auction are increasing substantially, and this year has been no exception, as a growing number of people are looking to buy artwork via auction as part of an investment portfolio”, explains Amanda Brook, CEO of the Abbeys Group. “Not only will the artwork add a beautiful aesthetic to a home, but they can also be a great investment”.
There is certainly a piece for everyone in this auction. From turn of the century through to more contemporary abstract pieces and colourful indigenous works, the Abbeys team is very proud of this auction and recommend a visit to the Burwood auction rooms in person – or view the works online.
The Fine Art auction is online now for viewing and bidding, with the auction commencing live online at 10am on Saturday 26th November 2022. The collection can be viewed in-person on Thursdays from 9am – 5pm at Abbeys Auctions, 80 – 86 Highbury Road, Burwood.
