A Rover Thomas painting was removed from last night's Lawson-Menzies Aboriginal Art sale over concerns regarding missing information.

The auction was a success though:

Last night's auction reaped $2,715,600, including buyers' premium, with 122 of the 137 lots sold. This brought in $15,153,480 to the auction house this week when combined with Wednesday's Deutscher-Menzies Galleries auction which included the $6.9 million sale of Pablo Picasso's Sylvette (1954).

In total, the two auctions sold 231 of 263 works catalogued.
