The David and Angela Wright Collection of Modern and Contemporary New Zealand Art
The David and Angela Wright collection was distinguished by large scale works by many of New Zealand's most important modern and contemporary artists. The pre-auction exhibition was greatly admired as was the catalogue for which A+O commissioned essays from respected art critics and writers. Please refer to the video presentation which best captures the impact of the collection as a whole. The auction resulted in major works by Ralph Hotere, Bill Hammond, John Pule, Allen Maddox and Tony Fomison fetching near record prices and new auction records for Peter Robinson, Gavin Hipkins and Judy Millar.
