The selection up for auction is remarkable, featuring pieces from esteemed Australian artists like Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Arthur Boyd, John Perceval, Guy Grey-Smith, Robert Juniper, Portia Bennett, Howard Arkley, and William Delafield Cook, Junior.

The GFL Autumn Fine Art Auction is a celebration of diversity in artistic expression, boasting works from over 100 different artists. One of the standout lots is Burn Off (Lot 46 ) by Robert Juniper. This stunning depiction of the Australian landscape in the artist's signature style encapsulates the essence of the transformation that the landscape often undergoes during the dry summer season.

One of the many highlights of the auction is a piece by the acclaimed Indigenous Australian artist Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Arlatyey - Pencil Yam 98 (Lot 20 ). Her intuitive, abstract style, deeply influenced by her cultural heritage and the landscape of her home in Utopia, Central Australia, continues to captivate audiences and collectors worldwide.

Arthur Boyd, a leading Australian painter of the late 20th century, is represented in the auction with an early example from his Shoalhaven period, Shoalhaven Landscape with Sulphur Crested Cockatoo (Lot 47 ), a piece that has remained in the same collection for 30 years.

Another important figure in Australian art, John Perceval, brings a distinctive touch to the auction with his portrait Tessa And Winkie in Blackman’s Chair (Lot 32 ) of his two daughters Tessa and Celia, both of whom went on to become leading Australian contemporary artists.
