Deutscher and Hackett

Laverty art collection a true auction treasure

Deutscher and Hackett will auction part III of the Laverty Collection from 7pm Wednesday April 5 at the Cell Block Theatre, National Art School, Forbes Street, Darlinghurst in Sydney.

Passionate art collectors for many years, Colin and Liz Laverty’s collecting lives were turned upside down in 1988 when they attended the World Expo in Brisbane.

It was there they were captivated by a large group of Aboriginal Papunya Tula paintings on display.

Back in Sydney, they set about gaining as much knowledge as possible about Aboriginal art through books and catalogues.
