The Collection of Anne Coney
Art+Object is delighted to present, in its entirety, the collection of well-known local arts lover and supporter, Anne Coney. A regular presence at gallery openings, auctions and events in Auckland, Anne has shaped over nearly forty years one of the most exciting, idiosyncratic and directional collections in the country. Perhaps best characterised by a love of colour and exuberance the collection features excellent examples by Modernists such as Louise Henderson, Adele Younghusband, Michael Smither and Tony Fomison collected during the 1980s, through to dynamic contemporary works by Judy Millar, Sara Hughes, Andrew McLeod, Dale Frank, Michael Stevenson, Liz Maw, Andrew McLeod, Andre Hemer, Bill Hammond and many more. The Anne Coney Collection offers a unique snapshot of the local art scene over the last three or four decades through the eye of one of Auckland?s most committed collectors and vibrant personalities.
