Australian & International Art

Mossgreen has been selling Fine Australian & International Art privately and at auction for over ten years.

2015 was a record year, the highlight of which was The Peter Elliott Collection in Sydney. The high profile three day auction achieved a remarkable $7.026 million over three days (98% sold by lot and 213% by value). The Fine Art section, a stand-alone evening auction, achieved $4.4 million against a low estimate of $2.4 million and was 100% sold by lot, a rare statistic in this industry. Brett Whiteley’s The Arrival – A Glimpse in the Botanical Gardens of 1984 led the auction and sold for $793,000, followed by At the Bottom of the Park Lavender Bay is a Jacaranda Gardenia Tree 1984-85, also by Whiteley, which sold for $610,000.

Mossgreen holds several other impressive records in this category including:

• John Olsen’s Love in the Kitchen 1969 sold for $1,093,050, September 2006 (highest price for a living Australian artist at auction)

• Frederick McCubbin’s Mrs McCubbin Picking Blossom (Spring), 1890 sold for $1,342,000, October 2014 (highest price for the artist at auction since 2007)

• Ah Xian’s Concrete Forest: Acanthus Mollis sold for $105,000, October 2014 (highest price for the artist at auction)

• The highest and second highest price for Ray Austin Crooke at auction

We are now seeking consignments for our next auctions in June, September and November.

We also offer our clients the opportunity to buy and sell fine art privately, a flexible and discrete alternative to buying and selling at auction. For further information and to view a selection of works available for private sale.
