The Collection of the Late Nicholas Browne
ART+OBJECT announces the modern and contemporary art collection of the late Nicholas Browne. Principally compiled in the 1990s and hitherto seen by very few, the collection presents itself as a prescient and insightful snapshot of the contemporary New Zealand art world compiled in a carefully edited and highly idiosyncratic manner. Browne lived in Auckland and possessed a wonderful eye for contemporary art informed by close relationships with artists, dealers and fellow collectors. The collection consists of around sixty works by key contemporary and modern artists including: Andrew McLeod, Julian Dashper, Bill Hammond, Giovanni Intra, Ralph Hotere, Colin McCahon, Seraphine Pick, Mary-Louise Browne, Richard Killeen, John Reynolds and many more. A small stand-alone catalogue will be published to mark the event.
