Deutscher and Hackett

Art mix for keen auction goers

A mix of traditional, modern, contemporary and Aboriginal art will characterise Deutscher and Hackett’s latest art auction from 7pm Wednesday November 27 at 105 Commercial Road, South Yarra.

One of the major paintings is Rupert Bunny’s Cherries, c1908. The work was part of his 1911 solo exhibition at the Baillie Gallery in London before being brought to Australia in July of that year for the Exhibition of Pictures by Rupert Bunny at Athenaeum Hall, Melbourne as part of his triumphant return after 27 years abroad.

Donald Friend collection a Sydney auction must

A significant collection of paintings, sketches, furnishings, ceramics and woodcarvings either painted or picked up by the late artist Donald Friend will be auctioned from 2pm Sunday by Deutscher and Hackett at Paddington Town Hall in Sydney.

Valued at more than $1 million, they are not from Friend’s estate – but instead belong to his long-time friend and occasional agent Attilio Guarracino.

In 1951, fellow artist Jeffrey Smart introduced Donald Friend to Mr Guarracino and, despite an often turbulent relationship, they remained friends until the artist died in 1989.
