Perth’s Stirling Fine Art directors, John and Angie Best have decided to step out of the secondary art market, in order to focus on the primary art market, with 166 artworks from their collection up for auction in McKenzie’s September 14 auction.
The Best’s have operated in Perth over the past 10 years, curating exhibitions and selling privately. They built a reputation for dealing in artworks at a level which was a first step for buyers into the secondary market, specialising in artworks with values between $500 to $20,000.
The auction offers a good collection of well presented contemporary artworks, with the majority being offered unreserved.
David Boyd is represented by two works from the Music and the Angel series (Lots 8 & 60) estimated between $4,500-$6,000 and Children by the River Bank (Lot 90 ) 29.5x37cm, estimated between $10,000-$12,000, last traded at Sotheby’s Melbourne in 2006;
