Important Paintings and Contemporary Art
6:00PM 3 Abbey Street, Newton, Auckland
2021 represented a watershed year for the wider New Zealand art market and for Art+Object. Strong sales were reported from gallerists in the primary market and total sales through auction on the secondary market totalled sixty million dollars, easily the strongest year on record. Art+Object finished 2021 as the leading New Zealand auction house with total reported sales of over 23 million dollars, a phenomenal result given the disruptions and uncertainty which plagued us all throughout last year.
Our first auction of Important Paintings and Contemporary Art of 2022 is scheduled for April 5 and takes place amidst an atmosphere of continued growth and interest in the arts in this country. Early highlights include major works by Gordon Walters, Shane Cotton, Dick Frizzell and Fiona Pardington. Consignments are now invited.
