About

We have included ONLY “Museum Quality” pieces which will work well both in the current “secondary art” market as well as in your self-sponsored superannuation fund or simply for your enjoyment… hanging on your wall.

On this list, we have only included old masters… these are the founding fathers and mothers of the “Papunya Tula” movement… past elders, law-men and women AND of course artists in their respective communities.

For each piece of art we have including some or all of the following information:

PHOTO: A photo of the piece of art

ARTIST NAME: The artist’s name

TITLE: The Title of the piece of art

YEAR: The year the piece of art was completed

MEDIUM: Paint & base type used to execute the piece

IMAGE SIZE: The size in millimetres

SIGNATURE: If the piece is originally signed by the artist & where

DOCUMENTATION: Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) and/or working photos

CATALOGUE: Issued by either the artist, gallery, agent or Community

GALLERY PRICE: Current Gallery pricing for the artist

AUCTION RESULTS: Top ten artworks for this artist sold at auction

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Brief biographical information on artist

SOME IMPORTANT POINTS:


ARTIST: Must be a listed and well documented artist.

SIZE: Size does matter in art….as a general rule, the larger the piece, the higher the price.

SUBJECT MATTER: Very important indeed….each artist leaves the legacy of a particular subject matter(s) which tend to define this artist’s career (life). For Aboriginal artists this is defined as the “Dreaming”.

QUALITY: Known on the market as “Museum Quality” pieces of art. The very best examples painted by that artist in their career.

PROVENANCE: This comes in many forms… Good provenance includes, but is not limited to; Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) / photos of works / working photos (when available) / life of artist / professional accomplishments / awards / collections both in Australia and Internationally / major exhibitions held by the artist / sales records and results / bibliography on books, articles and essays published on or by the artist / references and numerous other factors.

Unfortunately we had to stop there….as you can imagine, we could have gone on forever supplying more and more information on each artist and each piece with the danger of this document becoming a thesis rather than a catalogue.

All of the artists included in the catalogue are collected in literally hundreds of Galleries worldwide….some of these being:

INTERNATIONAL GALLERY COLLECTIONS

NATIONAL GALLERIES

REGIONAL GALLERIES

GOVERNMENT COLLECTIONS

ROYAL COLLECTIONS

CORPORATE COLLECTIONS

….and hundreds of others.

We have also omitted to comment on each piece of art with reference to its importance in the artist’s career (if any) and in relation to its’ cultural significance and artist’s “Dreaming”. Again, this information is readily available on request.

Other information we may have omitted is mainly biographical data on each artist which could have included such things as:

Life

Professional Life

Early Art

Professional Career

Artworks

Late Art

Major Exhibitions

Joint Exhibitions

Bibliography

and references….but as before, all of the above information is readily available on request.

We have been investing in and selling art for the past 35 years. Our collection consists of well over 4000 pieces. Other Australian Aboriginal artists I have the pleasure of representing are:

We hope that all of the above (as well as the main catalogue itself) is as easily understandable as we intended it to be….again, all prices quoted are in both USD and Bitcoin.
