Welcome to ART+OBJECT's third major art catalogue of 2011. This catalogue follows two very successuful art catalogues in April and June of this year with combined sales of over NZ$2.8 milion dollars. Whilst high value auction sales such as the Bill Hammond canvas 'Singer Songwriter' which sold for NZ$322,435 garner headlines and comment, the art collection world is a broad constituency. Fascinating, beautiful and challenging works can be located at almost any pricepoint and this art catalogue reflects this truism. Auction houses have traditionally segregated works by value. In this catalogue we have dissolved those boundaries by including works with estimates from a few hundred dollars to major works priced at over one hundred thousand dollars. This ART catalogue offers something for the collector on all budgets. This catalogue, the 46th ART+OBJECT has produced since 2007, bears witness to the extraordinary richness of the modern and contemporary art produced in Aotearoa and we look forward to discussing just that during our pre-auction viewing from August 12 to 18.
