Menzies Art Brands

Potential record smasher Whiteley on view at Sydney art auction

Brett Whiteley’s Henri’s Armchair 1974-75 – offered for sale for the first time since being purchased from the artist by the late Clive Evatt QC – could be the painting that smashes all previous Australian art records when it goes under the hammer as a single lot auction by Menzies at 7pm on November 26 in Sydney.

Carrying a catalogue estimate of $5 million to $7 million, the painting is set to eclipse the $5.4 million achieved 11 years ago for Sidney Nolan’s First-Class Marksman 1946 by Menzies when sold to prominent art dealer Roger McIlroy.

Richmond star Dustin Martin isn’t the only player to be voted best-on-ground in all three Australian Football League  grand final premierships (2017 and 2019-2020) in which he has featured.

These days, best-on-ground in a grand final is awarded the Norm Smith Medal – named after the legendary Melbourne coach who steered his team to several premierships during the 1950s and 1960s.

Before 1979, when the first Norm Smith Medal was awarded, the best player was just that without any concrete award acknowledgment.
