In 2015, Mossgreen sold The Peter Elliott Collection of Fine Australian Art, Indigenous Australian Art, Chinese Art & Antiques. It was the most significant collection of its kind ever to appear at auction in Australia and realised a remarkable $7.026 million over three days in Sydney (98% sold by lot and 213% sold by value).

In 2016, Mossgreen was entrusted with The Denis Joachim Collection of important Australian colonial books, paintings and photographs, an auction which realised a total of $3.34 million and in June last year, Mossgreen was honoured to present the collection of Max Dupain: Estate Photographs to market. The collection of 500 original photographs, direct from the Dupain’s estate, was 100% sold by lot and set multiple records for photography at auction in Australia, achieving a total of $1.67 million against a low estimate of $877,800.

Highlights in 2017 include The Lowenstein Collection of Modern & Contemporary Australian Art. Assembled over 30 years by Lowensteins Artist Management & Accountancy firm, this unique collection represents the very best of Australian art, with works by renowned artists such as John Olsen, Charles Blackman, Arthur Boyd, Tim Storrier and Ben Quilty to name just a few.

The Hickinbotham Collection that occurred in Adelaide realised some phenomenal results including the sixth highest price ever achieved at auction for an Australian artist, the highest price achieved for a painting sold in South Australia and an artist record for Russell Drysdale’s masterpiece, Grandma’s Sunday Walk; sold for $2.97 million in June. This sale included fantastic results for a number of Australian artists like Arthur Streeton, Albert Namatjira and Charles Conder and achieved a total of $4.4 million against a low estimate of $2.67 million continuing our consistent track record of selling the best Single Owner Collections that come on the market.
