Mossgreen’s Sunday Art Emporium was the perfect place for alert collectors to seek out gems. True collectors have a nose for works that will add a touch of pizzaz to their collection—many will chase the trophy acquisition that they believe others will admire—but some seek out artists on their wishlists that add breadth to their collections with a touch of classicism, beauty, irony and intrigue—and all the better, if the price is right.
The room at Mossgreen’s Sunday Art Emporium was full of collectors in this latter category with wishlists in hand. They were drawn in by modest low estimates, but many prices soared as soon as two or more chased the same piece, often leading to record prices for artists.
On a cold winter’s night in Auckland, it was all go at the International Art Centre’s 'Important, Early and Rare' sale on 22 July 2015, with a packed room, television cameras, a drunk patron causing a commotion and most importantly, stellar results and new auction records.
The International Art Centre always produces a varied sale and this one was no exception, featuring some very interesting and high quality paintings.
Sotheby’s Sydney June 21 Fine Asian, Australian & European Arts & Design auction reached an expected $1.5 million sale price (including buyers premiums) with strong prices for contemporary works.
A highlight was the collection of leading Australian law firm Minter Ellison that featured an impressive selection of Australian photography and art including works by Adam Cullen, Max Dupain, Bill Henson, Akio Makigawa, Rosemary Laing, Robert MacPherson, Tracey Moffatt and Patricia Piccinini – and established four new artist auction records.
Items from leading Australian law firm Minter Ellison will be a major highlight of Sotheby’s Australia’s Fine Asian, Australian & European Arts & Design auction from 6pm Tuesday July 21 at the InterContinental Hotel, 117 Macquarie Street, Sydney.
The firm is selling its collection because it is moving from its old Aurora Place, Sydney offices to new premises, which are largely open plan with fewer walls.
One of the more significant sculptures is Makigawa’s Wisdom of Water 1995 – the genesis of inspiration being bottled drinking water.
