SID NOLAN AUCTION RECORD
“I am not a corporation, and I am not a charitable fund” she told the Australian, “but I think if I do something like this, it may prompt other people to consider giving to a cause they believe in.”
She was delighted that the painting was sold to local private collectors-Iris Lustig-Moar and Max Moar through art dealer Brian Kino – allowing the Nolan to remain in Australia.
Lady Renouf intends to re-invest in the art market, and her first acquisition since the sale of the Nolan was a stunning flower piece by rising star John Cerlienco from his Macroflora series.
John Cerlienco is represented by Mossgreen Gallery and has a wonderful show in the pipeline for October at the gallery.
Also from Lady Renouf’s collection is Sidney Nolan’s Painting – Portrait of Arthur Boyd at Fitzroy Falls – which is to be offered by private treaty sale through Mossgreen Gallery later this year.
