Aboriginal art sale draws artists

Aboriginal Art Directory | 31.03.10

Fairymead House is about to get a whole new collection with some of the biggest names in Australian art – but this time, they will be for sale.

Paintings and artworks by Albert Namatjira, Walter Ebaterinja, Pro Hart and David Badcock will be up for auction on Sunday, April 18, along with many other rare Aboriginal artefacts, sculptures, jewellery and fine art pieces.

“The works of art include artefacts and boomerangs, woomeras (spear thrower), spears, and Hermansberg paintings by Albert Namatjira and Walter Ebaterinja,” principal auctioneer Steve Archer said.

“There is an extensive collection of Central Desert paintings from boardroom size to small, approximately 50 works, with many established names.”
